The presence of IL-17-positive cells is observed in a variety of inflammatory associated cancers and IL-17 has been found to be involved in angiogenesis. The aim of this study is to determine the prognostic significance of IL-17 in NSCLC patients and to examine the correlation between IL-17 expression and lymphatic vessel density in NSCLC tissues. The expression of IL-17 was measured by immunohistochemistry in 52 paraffin-embedded tissues with non-small cell lung cancer. The chi(2) test was… CONTINUE READING
