Angiogenesis (CD31), proliferation (Ki67) and cell death (TUNEL) stained in tumors from untreated controls and after intermittent and daily hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBO). n = 5 in all groups. Mean values ± SD. *p < 0.02 compared to both control and daily HBO treatment. Δresults obtained from Jevne et al. [21]
