For example, it does not measure the degree of vascular heterogeneity across the tumor, or the functions of the microvasculature such as blood flow or extent of tumor hypoxia. Results from a number of clinical investigations now have indicated that increased MVD is associated with a poor prognosis. Indeed, MVD has been shown to be an independent prognostic factor in a variety of tumor types, including breast, bladder, ovarian, prostatic, pancreatic, melanoma, colorectal, and gastric carcinoma (Toi et al.

1993; Shi and Siemann 2002; Witte et al. 1998; Solorzano et al. 2001). Bevacizumab (Avastin), a recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody to VEGF, is the first anti-angiogenic therapy to have demonstrated a survival advantage when given to patients with cancer (Hurwitz et al. 2003). It is currently being investigated in a number of tumor types, including NSCLC. In Phase I studies, bevacizumab was generally well tolerated. Two patients had severe adverse events related to intratumoral bleeding and minor hemoptyses were also reported in other patients with pulmonary metastases.

2002; Fontanini et al. 2002). However, not all lung cancer investigations have demonstrated relationships between vessel density and outcome. For example, in several recent studies MVD failed to be a predictor for survival in NSCLC (Pastorino et al. 1997; Apolinario et al. 1997; Chandrachud et al. 1997; Decaussin et al. 1999; Macluskey et al. 2000). These apparently contradic- 16 tory results may arise from differences in staining methods, tumor heterogeneity, and inter-observer variability. Interestingly, in tumors with an “alveolar pattern,” where there is little parenchymal destruction and alveolar septa are present, prognosis is worse than in tumors showing an “angiogenic pattern” (Pezzella et al.
