Angiogenesis in human liver tumors

01 July 2009

PhD ceremony: mw. W. Zeng, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Thesis: Angiogenesis in human liver tumors

Promotor(s): prof. S. Poppema, prof. G. Molema, prof. N. Zhang

Faculty: Medical Sciences


Angiogenesis is an important mode of tumor associated neovascularization to support tumor growth. For liver tumors, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) which is one of the most common malignancies world wide, and a number of benign tumors, angiogenesis may represent an interesting target for therapy. The angiogenic status of human liver tumors is not investigated in-depth, and is the subject of this research.
