BACKGROUND The microvessel density (MVD) is often used as a quantitative parameter for angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the three most commonly used endothelial markers of microvessels, CD31, CD34 and vWF, in benign and malignant prostatic tissue. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen benign hyperplastic prostate and 54 prostate cancer specimens were immunohistochemically stained for CD31/CD34/vWF. The MVD obtained by each marker was quantified by a vessel count in standardized… CONTINUE READING
