A stochastic model of tumor angiogenesis

Abstract

Angiogenesis is a prerequisite for the growth, invasion and metastasis of solid tumors. The aim of this study was to investigate the changes of microvessel densities in tumor with a method of probability. We showed that the stages of tumor angiogenesis may follow a probabilistic pattern compatible with Markov chain and this could be of prognostic importance… (More)
