Lymphatic metastasis is an important way that gastric carcinomas can spread. However, little is known about the mechanisms of lymphangiogenesis and its clinical significance in gastric carcinomas. In the present study, lymphatic vessel density (LVD), VEGF-C expression, and proliferative activity of lymphatic endothelium were determined in human gastric… (More)
