Complex interactions between tumor cells and their surrounding compartment are strongly influenced by the host in which the tumor grows. In melanoma, for instance, stress-associated norephinephrine (NE), acting at β-adrenergic receptors (β-ARs), stimulates melanoma cell proliferation and tumor angiogenesis. Among β-ARs, β3-ARs play a role acting not only at(More)
The serendipitous demonstration that the nonselective β-adrenergic receptor (β-AR) antagonist propranolol promotes the regression of infantile hemangiomas (IHs) aroused interest around the involvement of the β-adrenergic system in angiogenic processes. The efficacy of propranolol was related to the β2-AR blockade and the consequent inhibition of the(More)
