Tumor angiogenesis and metastasis--correlation in invasive breast carcinoma.
BACKGROUND Experimental evidence suggests that the growth of a tumor beyond a certain size requires angiogenesis, which may also permit metastasis. To investigate how tumor angiogenesis correlatesExpand

Spontaneous corticospinal axonal plasticity and functional recovery after adult central nervous system injury
Although it is believed that little recovery occurs after adult mammalian spinal cord injury, in fact significant spontaneous functional improvement commonly occurs after spinal cord injury inExpand

Tumor angiogenesis: a new significant and independent prognostic indicator in early-stage breast carcinoma.
BACKGROUND Axillary lymph node status has been the most important prognostic factor in operable breast carcinoma, but it does not fully account for the varied disease outcome. More accurateExpand

Tumor angiogenesis correlates with metastasis in invasive prostate carcinoma.
Tumor growth and metastasis require angiogenesis; and microvessel density, a measure of tumor angiogenesis, correlates with metastasis in breast and lung carcinoma. To determine how microvesselExpand

Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors. A polymorphous group causing osteomalacia or rickets
Reported are the pathologic features of 17 mesenchymal tumors documented as causing osteomalacia or rickets. Although these tumors were histologically polymorphous, they were classifiable into fourExpand

Genetic alterations in lobular breast cancer by comparative genomic hybridization
Infiltrating lobular carcinoma (ILC) and infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC) are distinguished by their histopathological appearance. However, little is known about the differences in genetic changesExpand
