Small GTPases are pivotal regulators of several aspects of tumor progression. Their implication in angiogenesis, vascular permeability and tumor-associated inflammatory responses is relevant to the pathobiology of Malignant Pleural Effusion (MPE). Inhibition of isoprenylcysteine carboxylmethyltransferase (Icmt) abrogates small GTPase activation. We(More)
The impact of temsirolimus was investigated in a murine model of malignant pleural effusion (MPE) created with intrapleural injection of Lewis Lung Cancer (LLC) cells. Temsirolimus (1 or 20 mg/kg) did not affect the pleural fluid volume or the number of pleural tumour foci. In addition, temsirolimus did not affect vascular endothelial growth factor(More)
