OBJECTIVE Serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) can be seen as surrogate markers of angiogenesis. Recently, leptin, which is involved in the control of satiety and energy expenditure, was also shown to modulate angiogenesis. As angiogenesis plays an abundant role in cervical carcinogenesis, we evaluated serum VEGF and leptin in patients with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical cancer. METHODS Serum VEGF and leptin were measured in 84 patients with… CONTINUE READING
