In animal models, growth of tumors and their metastases is dependent on factors that stimulate vessel formation (angiogenesis). Most clinical studies confirm the importance of angiogenesis for cancer growth in patients. Recent studies on circulating angiogenic factors in patients have focused on serum vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) levels in a variety of cancer types. We measured serum VEGF concentrations and blood counts in 27 breast cancer patients during each of 6 cycles of… CONTINUE READING
