Prognostic significance of vascular endothelial growth factor expression and microvessel density in carcinoma of ampulla of Vater



Prognostic significance of vascular endothelial growth factor expression and microvessel density in carcinoma of ampulla of Vater



Hepato-Gastroenterology 53(67): 45-50



Background/Aims: To investigate whether the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and microvessel density (AM) are of prognostic significance in ampullary carcinoma.Methodology: Twenty-two resected tumor specimens from patients with ampullary carcinoma were immunohistochemically stained for VEGF and CD34 (surrogate for vessels) by streptavidin-peroxidase method.Results: Expression of VEGF in tumor tissue was found in 50% of patients.
