Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a specific type of breast tumor that generally has a poor prognosis, in spite of recent advances in treatment. In the present study, semiquantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction examination of resected specimens showed that angiogenic factors, not lymphangiogenic factors, are overexpressed in IBC tumors, compared with non-IBC tumors. Immunohistochemical analysis of the specimens revealed a significantly higher population of tumor… CONTINUE READING
