In the continuing search for effective treatments for cancer, the emerging model is the combination of traditional chemotherapy with anti-angiogenesis agents that inhibit blood vessel growth. However, the implementation of this strategy has faced two major obstacles. First, the long-term shutdown of tumour blood vessels by the anti-angiogenesis agent can(More)
BACKGROUND Therapeutic vasculogenesis is an emerging concept that can potentially be harnessed for the management of ischemic pathologies. The present study elucidates the potential coregulation of vasculogenesis by the heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycan-rich cell-surface glycome and the transcriptome. METHODS AND RESULTS Differentiation of embryonic stem(More)
Anti-angiogenic therapy offers many benefits over traditional cytotoxic chemotherapy including fewer toxic side effects and the reduced development of drug resistance. Anti-angiogenics alone have not proven effective in inducing tumor regression in the clinic due to both the cytostatic nature of anti-angiogenic therapy and the potential formation of new(More)
The use of polymeric nanoparticles as drug delivery devices is becoming increasingly prevalent in a variety of therapeutic applications. Despite their widespread clinical use, the factors influencing the release profiles of nanoparticle-encapsulated drugs are still not quantitatively understood. We present here a new, semi-empirical model of drug release(More)
