Tumour growth is accompanied by angiogenesis and reduced apoptosis in experimental animals. The aim of this study was to examine the prognostic value of apoptosis and the association between apoptosis and vascularity in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Following in-situ end-labelling of DNA, apoptotic cells were quantified by three different indices: as a percentage, either counting total cells (AI-tc) or point-counting (AI-pc), or as cells per area (AI-area). Blood vessels were stained with… CONTINUE READING
