Prechemotherapy serum levels of CD105, transforming growth factor beta2, and vascular endothelial growth factor are associated with prognosis in patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer treated with cytoreductive surgery and platinum-based chemotherapy.


BACKGROUND Serum CD105 has been associated with angiogenic activity in cancer, and low CD105 expression has been associated with improved prognosis. The present study evaluated the prognostic significance of serum levels of CD105 and related factors in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) after cytoreductive surgery and chemotherapy.
