BACKGROUND Platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor (PD-ECGF) is an angiogenic factor that has potent chemotactic activity for endothelial cells. Although it is expressed in the majority of colorectal tumors, and some reports suggest that its high expression is related to poor prognosis, to the authors' knowledge there is yet no consensus regarding whether PD-ECGF expression is a prognostic factor. To investigate the prognostic value of PD-ECGF and its role in tumor angiogenesis, an… CONTINUE READING
