BACKGROUND The clinical relevance of tumor angiogenesis has been investigated in several human tumor types. Angiogenesis (measured as microvessel density; MVD) was recently correlated with tumor stage, grade, and clinical course in prostate cancer (PC). However, considerable controversy remains concerning the prognostic value of angiogenesis in PC. METHODS We examined MVD in primary PCs to further establish the prognostic relevance of angiogenesis in this tumor entity. In 98 paraffin-embedded… CONTINUE READING
