Mechanisms of inhibition of endothelial cell migration by taxanes.

Several antiangiogenic mechanisms have been proposed for the widely-used cancer chemotherapeutic drugs taxotere (docetaxel) and taxol (paclitaxel), but none has been definitively identified. We analyzed their effects at a range of concentrations on migration and mitosis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) on microtubule and focal adhesion… CONTINUE READING
