Core Tip Most hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) are hypervascular tumor, thus angiogenesis markers can be a potential biomarker. This study explored the potential of each plasma level of angiopoietin (Ang)-1, Ang-2, and vascular endothelial growth factor as a prognostic biomarker for very early to advanced stages of HCC via detailed analysis in comparison with alpha-fetoprotein. The plasma level of Ang-2 correlated with liver function, tumor stage, and tumor invasiveness. Multivariable and propensity score-matched analyses revealed Ang-2 levels with the highest predictive power for overall survival in patients with HCC.
