Formation of new blood vessels from a preexisting vascular bed (angiogenesis) is a complex multistep process, which may also permit metastasis. Estrogen and progesterone are important in breast tumorigenesis, and their effects on the breast are mediated by their respective receptors, the estrogen receptor (ER) and the progesterone receptor (PR). To investigate how tumor angiogenesis correlates with ER/PR status in breast carcinoma diagnosed on core biopsy, microvessels were counted (and graded… CONTINUE READING
