Intercellular transfer of the oncogenic receptor EGFRvIII by microvesicles derived from tumour cells
Aggressive human brain tumours (gliomas) often express a truncated and oncogenic form of the epidermal growth factor receptor, known as EGFRvIII. Within each tumour only a small percentage of gliomaExpand

Endothelial expression of autocrine VEGF upon the uptake of tumor-derived microvesicles containing oncogenic EGFR
Activated EGF receptor (EGFR) plays an oncogenic role in several human malignancies. Although the intracellular effects of EGFR are well studied, its ability to induce and modulate tumor angiogenesisExpand

Neutralizing antibodies against epidermal growth factor and ErbB-2/neu receptor tyrosine kinases down-regulate vascular endothelial growth factor production by tumor cells in vitro and in vivo:
The overexpression in tumor cells of (proto)-oncogenic receptor tyrosine kinases such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or ErbB2/neu (also known as HER-2) is generally thought to contributeExpand

CD44 regulates hematopoietic progenitor distribution, granuloma formation, and tumorigenicity.
CD44 is expressed in various isoforms on numerous cell types and tissues during embryogenesis and in the mature organism. CD44 may also be involved in tumor growth. To study the multiple roles ofExpand

Continuous low-dose therapy with vinblastine and VEGF receptor-2 antibody induces sustained tumor regression without overt toxicity.
Various conventional chemotherapeutic drugs can block angiogenesis or even kill activated, dividing endothelial cells. Such effects may contribute to the antitumor efficacy of chemotherapy in vivoExpand

Microvesicles: Messengers and mediators of tumor progression
Cellular interactions play a crucial role in progression, angiogenesis and invasiveness of tumors, including glioma. The traditionally accepted view is that medium and long-range cellularExpand

A role for survivin in chemoresistance of endothelial cells mediated by VEGF
Although standard anticancer chemotherapeutic drugs have been designed to inhibit the survival or growth of rapidly dividing tumor cells, it is possible to enhance the efficacy of such drugs byExpand

The 92-kDa gelatinase B is expressed by advanced stage melanoma cells: suppression by somatic cell hybridization with early stage melanoma cells.
The production and local release of various proteolytic enzymes, either by tumor cells or tumor-associated stromal cells, is thought to facilitate the malignant behavior of solid tumors. HumanExpand
