Since MVD by definition measures the peak vessel density, use of small samples may affect accuracy and it is technically difficult to sample similar areas of 21 tumor repeatedly. Secondly, while MVD reflects some aspects of the angiogenic process, it may not be a measure of the relative dependence of a particular tumor on angiogenesis, and changes in MVD do not necessarily correlate with changes in tumor growth rate. The expression level of angiogenic factors, either quantified within tumor tissue or after secretion into body fluids, provides another indirect measure of tumor angiogenesis.
