Proliferation: Proliferating is the multiplying or increasing in number. In biology, cell proliferation occurs by a process known as cell division. The proliferating index measures the number of cells in a tumor that are dividing (proliferating). May be used with the S-phase fraction to give a more complete understanding of how fast a tumor is growing.
