Prognostic significance and effect of chemoradiotherapy on microvessel density (angiogenesis) in esophageal Barrett's esophagus-associated adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.


Previous studies have shown that intratumoral microvessel density (IMD) correlates with clinical outcome in a variety of human neoplasms, such as those that arise in the breast, colon, and stomach, suggesting that angiogenesis is important in cancer progression. The aims of this study were to evaluate the prognostic utility of IMD in esophageal Barrett's… (More)
