Abstract

Recent studies have shown that women with invasive breast carcinoma having high microvessel density (MVD) (a measure of tumor angiogenesis) or epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression have increased risk for metastasis and/or decreased survival. To determine if MVD and EGFR expression provide additive prognostic information, we analyzed these two prognostic indicators in the primary invasive breast carcinomas from 165 consecutive patients, who were followed for a median of 51 months. Univariate analysis showed a highly significant (p
