To determine whether tumor angiogenesis correlates with prognosis and metastasis of patients with gastric carcinoma, we counted the microvessels within the primary carcinoma and compared their numbers with the patient's prognosis and mode of metastasis. Tumor specimens from 110 patients with gastric carcinoma, who had undergone curative resection more than 24 months before, were investigated. Intratumoral microvessels were stained with anti-CD34 and anti-von Willebrand factor monoclonal… CONTINUE READING
