The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between tumor angiogenesis and prognosis in carcinoma of the cervix treated with radiotherapy with a median follow-up time of 55 months. A retrospective study was carried out on 111 patients. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor biopsies were stained with anti-factor VIII using immunohistochemistry. Tumor angiogenesis was assessed by scoring the distance to the closest microvessel from random points within the tumor and the intratumor… CONTINUE READING
