Vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C) has angiogenic and lymphangiogenic properties and is associated with the development of lymphatic metastases in a number of epithelial malignancies. The aim of this study was to determine VEGF-C protein expression in a series of breast carcinomas and correlate this with axillary lymph node (LN) metastases, the presence of lympho-vascular invasion (LVI), bone marrow micro-metastases (BMM) and other clinico-pathological data including oestrogen… CONTINUE READING
