Independent prognostic value of angiogenesis and the level of plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 in breast cancer patients

Abstract

Tumour angiogenesis and the levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) are both informative prognostic markers in breast cancer. In cell cultures and in animal model systems, PAI-1 has a proangiogenic effect. To evaluate the interrelationship of angiogenesis and the PAI-1 level in breast cancer, we have evaluated the prognostic value of those… (More)
