Metastatic brain tumors are almost always associated with vasogenic brain edema, which in turn plays a pivotal role in the evolution of neurological morbidity associated with these lesions. Attention has recently focused on a group of proteinaceous vascular permeability factors (VPF's) that are capable of inducing angiogenesis and promoting increased(More)
