Figure 3: Tumor, ascites, microvessel density and total vascular area in the study groups. At the end of the follow up a trend for smaller weights of the tumors
(a) and lower amount of ascites
(b) was noticed in group III as compared to control group I, although differencies were not statistically significant.
c) Microvessel density (MVD, microvessels/mm2) was significantly reduced in treatment groups II (p= 0.001), III (p= 0.002) and IV (p= 0.026) compared to control group I.
d) The total area of microvessels in tumors (TVA, total vascular area) was significantly reduced in treatment groups II (p= 0.005), III (p= 0.003) and IV (p= 0.013) compared to control group I. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001 versus control group I. Error bars= SEM.
