Methods now exist for the identification of human tumors that contain significant numbers of hypoxic cells and are thereby suitable for treatment with bioreductive drugs to eliminate this refractory cell population. However, to fully exploit the potential of bioreductive drugs, they will need to be used in combination with other modalities likely to target… CONTINUE READING
