Co-elevated expression of hepatocyte growth factor and Interleukin-8 contributes to poor prognosis of patients with primary nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

Abstract

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) related tumor angiogenesis and prognosis of patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has not been identified. The expressions of HGF and IL-8, as well as microvessels density were evaluated in 127 NPC biopsies by immunohistochemical staining. The correlation between these parameters and patient's clinicopathological… (More)
