BACKGROUND Angiogenesis plays an important role in tumor progression. The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important regulator of angiogenesis. In the present study we evaluated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) -2578C > A, -1154G > A, and +936C > T in the VEGF gene, and their prognostic value for patients operated on for colorectal cancer (CRC). PATIENTS AND METHOD VEGF polymorphisms have been analyzed in 177 patients who had undergone surgical resection at Hospital Cl… CONTINUE READING
