BACKGROUND A functional vascular network is essential for the survival, growth and spread of solid tumours, making blood vessels a key target for therapeutic strategies. Combretastatin A-4 phosphate (CA-4-P) is a tubulin-depolymerising agent in Phase II clinical trials as a vascular disrupting agent. Not much is known of the molecular effect of CA-4-P under(More)
Hypoxia in solid tumours has been correlated with poor prognosis and resistance to radiation and chemotherapy. Hypoxia is also a strong stimulus for gene expression. We previously proposed a gene therapy approach which exploits the presence of severe hypoxia in tumours for the induction of therapeutic genes. Hypoxic cells are known to have a reduced(More)
