Abstract

Angiogenesis plays an important role in tumor growth and metastasis. We performed an immunohistochemical study by anti-CD31 antibody to investigate the prognostic significance of microvessel count (MVC) in 163 Taiwanese patients with primary invasive ductal breast carcinomas. Univariate analysis revealed that MVC per 200x field correlated significantly with disease-free (P
