The Proangiogenic Capabilities of Malignant Ascites Generated by Aggressive Ovarian Tumors
Microscopic evaluation of angiogenesis in clear cell (CC), endometrioid (Endo), serous (Ser), and undifferentiated (Undiff) ovarian tumors that developed in the presence of malignant ascites. Panel (a) shows the representative results of CD31 and CD34 staining (the brown color indicates a positive reaction). Panels (b) and (c) show the results of the quantification of the brown-stained area reflecting the presence of CD31- (b) and CD34-positive cells (c). The results are expressed as a percentage (%), and the whole area of a specimen is considered to be 100%. versus CC; versus Endo; versus Ser. The results derive from an analysis of tumors from 6 different patients per group and are expressed as mean ± SEM.
