PURPOSE To determine the absolute and relative value of microvessel density (MVD), p53 and c-erbB-2 protein expression, peritumoral lymphatic vessel invasion (PLVI), and conventional prognosticators in predicting relapse-free (RFS) and overall survival (OS) rates in patients with node-negative breast carcinoma (NNBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS We monitored 254… CONTINUE READING
