Although normal BVs generally are not reactive with either monoclonal or polyclonal anti-S100 antibodies, weak labeling of a minority of endothelial cells are still noted.[39] The immunoreactivity of these endothelial cells in both normal and tumorous mammary may be due to the regulatory activity of extracellular S100 proteins on the endothelial and vascular smooth muscle in order to participate in innate and adaptive immune responses, cell migration, and chemotaxis, tissue development and repair and leukocyte and tumor cell invasion.[19] Since the endothelial cells of BVs in both normal and tumorous mammary are observed to positively react to S100, these cells cannot be used as markers for CMT.
The growing adoption of this therapy in emerging markets and the development of advanced external beam radiotherapy devices to localize tumorous cells while minimizing harm to surrounding healthy cells are some of the major factors contributing to the growth of this market segment.
