Imaging Key Biomarkers of Tumor Angiogenesis

  title={Imaging Key Biomarkers of Tumor Angiogenesis},
  author={Marina V. Backer and Joseph M Backer},
Angiogenesis is a fundamental requirement for tumor growth and therefore it is a primary target for anti-cancer therapy. Molecular imaging of angiogenesis may provide novel opportunities for early diagnostic and for image-guided optimization and management of therapeutic regimens. Here we reviewed the advances in targeted imaging of key biomarkers of tumor angiogenesis, integrins and receptors for vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Tracers for targeted imaging of these biomarkers in… CONTINUE READING
