Abstract

Objective: Overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and its association with angiogenesis have been shown in various carcinomas. In this study, we investigated COX-2 expression in clear cell type renal cell carcinoma and its association with microvessel density and various clinicopathologic parameters.
