Many studies also have associated the peak vessel density as measured by MVD with a poor prognosis in NSCLC Angiogenesis and Lung Cancer (Macchiarini et al. 1992; Yamazaki et al. 1994; Trivella et al. 2007; Guo et al. 2009; Medetoglu et al. 2010; Yang et al. 2010; Anagnostou et al.

It is normally suppressed and observed only transiently. However, angiogenesis can be activated in response to tissue damage, and it is associated with a variety of pathological conditions including cancer (Folkman 2002). While angiogenesis in itself is not sufficient for continued tumor growth, its absence severely compromises or halts the expansion of a tumor cell population. Indeed, it is believed that tumors can not grow to a size larger than a few cubic mm without initiating the angiogenic process (Folkman 1971, 1975, 2002).
