INTRODUCTION Malignant pleural effusions (MPEs) are a significant source of cancer morbidity and mortality. Currently there is no cure for MPEs and treatments only palliate the symptoms. The purpose of this study was to determine if there are differences in markers of angiogenesis and immune phenotypes between adenocarcinoma-induced MPEs and benign pleural effusions (BPEs). METHODS Pleural effusions were collected from patients with MPEs and BPEs. Cells were isolated from effusions and… CONTINUE READING
