    Abstract : Background: Angiogenesis is recognised as a critical step in tumour progression.

    Abstract : Background: A prognostic marker should provide information about course and outcome of disease, e.g. predict time to a given endpoint or rate of progression due to disease in patients or subgroups of patients. Prognostic markers could be targeted to apply during the entire clinical course or just during distinct stages of the disease. READ MORE
