However, little work has been done to define whether specific molecular alterations in pericellular proteolysis might account for patterns of recurrence. Other facets of the implantation process, such as proliferation and neovascularization, have been alluded to in other work. The epidermal growth factor/TGF alpha autocrine and paracrine loops have been suggested to predispose to recurrence (98). Subsequently, cellular production of vascular endothelial growth factor, allowing for the establishment 40 Theodorescu and See of a vascular support structure, has been suggested as a prognostic feature correlating with recurrence risk (99).
