ABS TRACT Objective: Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) which are involved in anjiogenesis and serum intercellular adhesion molecule (sICAM) which is a transmembranous protein from the immunoglobulin family play important role in tumor progression. The aim of this study was to analyze the association of serum levels of MMP-9, MMP13, VEGF and sICAM with clinical parameters and survival in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and to determine… CONTINUE READING
