BACKGROUND Tumor angiogenesis, as assayed by microvessel density, has been proposed as an independent prognostic marker for clinical outcome in breast cancer patients. PURPOSE The present study evaluated the microvessel density assay and assessed its utility, alone and together with the evaluation of other tumor characteristics, in predicting outcome in patients with invasive ductal carcinomas. METHODS In a blinded design, cases of invasive ductal carcinoma were selected from a registry… CONTINUE READING
