  2. DeHaven K, Taylor D, Gercel Taylor C. Comparison of serum vascular endothelial growth levels between patients with and without ovarian malignancies. Int J Gynecol Cancer. 2002;12:715-9 pubmed
    ..Based on our data, due to the lack of significant difference in mean serum VEGF values between patients with and without ovarian malignancies, we feel that serum VEGF cannot be used as a possible screening tool for ovarian cancer. ..

    ..Adjuvant combination platinum-based agent with gemcitabine is a very effective and well-tolerated treatment for recurrent fallopian tube or ovarian carcinoma; even in those who exhibit initial platinum resistance. ..

    ..Recurrence and survival outcomes are improved in well-staged patients treated with platinum/taxane-based chemotherapy. This multi-institutional study is the largest to support systemic therapy for early stage UPSC patients. ..

    ..MMP-26 and TIMP-4 are expressed in endometrium and endometrial carcinoma and their elevated expression and correlation with myometrial invasion suggests that MMP-26 and TIMP-4 may play a key role in endometrial tumor progression. ..
