Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Angiogenesis, an essential step in development of neoplasia, is a complex process that involves the interaction of tumor cells with stromal cells. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) can participate in the induction of tumor angiogenesis and are thought to be of prognostic value in some neoplasmas.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of this project is to analyse, by immunohistochemistry, the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in tumor cells of ductal invasive breast carcinoma NOS and in TAMs and to correlate their values with the microvessel density identified by expression of endoglin.
