Hypoxic tumor cells may represent a fraction of cells that are not susceptible to radiation or chemotherapy. Intratumoral oxygen partial pressure (pO2) is the result of oxygen delivery and consumption. Cell proliferation is one factor to effect oxygen consumption and we therefore studied the correlation between tumor pO2 and histological parameters. Patients and methods: In 36 women and one man (age range 29–80 years) with suspected breast cancer. Before tumor resection, intralesional pO2 was… CONTINUE READING
