Interaction between the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathways: a rational approach for multi-target anticancer therapy.

Abstract

Over the last decade, the concept of targeted biological therapy for the treatment of cancer has emerged. However, a better understanding of these targets and their role in tumor cells and in the surrounding stromal cells is required. Two interesting biological targets are the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and the vascular endothelia growth factor… (More)
