Abstract

BACKGROUND: Angiogenesis is a very essential process in tumor biology. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), angiopoietin and its receptor (TIE-2) are very important mediators for angiogenesis. In this trial, we aimed to analyze the role of these mediators on chemotherapy response and survival.
