Serum concentrations of VEGF and b-FGF in renal cell, prostate and urinary bladder carcinomas.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1999

Sixty nine patients with urogenital cancers (renal, bladder and prostate cancer) were studied to determine whether the serum concentrations of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) and basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (b-FGF) reflected the status of the patients and/or the prognosis of the disease. Of the patients included in this study, renal cell carcinoma patients expressed the highest levels of VEGF indicating that these tumours are more VEGF dependent. The values of b-FGF could be considered normal in all three malignancies. No correlation was observed between the expression of VEGF and b-FGF, nor between VEGF and b-FGF and patients survival.
