Angiogenesis is controlled by inhibitors and angiogenic factors. Among these, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is closely involved in cancer proliferation and has been related to progression and prognosis of various cancers, including lung cancer. To evaluate the role of bFGF, we measured serum levels of bFGF from healthy controls (Ctrl) and 106 patients with lung cancer, including 31 adenocarcinomas (AD), 29 squamous cell carcinomas (SQ), and 46 small cell carcinomas (SCLC), by enzyme… CONTINUE READING
