Antiangiogenic and antivascular agents provide new approaches to treating tumours. These may avoid many of the problems experienced with current approaches such as inherent and acquired resistance to treatment. Tumours do not grow beyond 1–2 mm3 in size without the development of new vessels (Folkman, 1971). Such neo-vascularization (angiogenesis) allows tumour cells to increase their nutrient supply, survive and proliferate despite the new vessels often having structural and functional… CONTINUE READING
