Regression of established tumors and metastases by potent vascular endothelial growth factor blockade.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a critical promoter of blood vessel growth during embryonic development and tumorigenesis. To date, studies of VEGF antagonists have primarily focused on halting progression in models of minimal residual cancer. Consistent with this focus, recent clinical trials suggest that blockade of VEGF may impede cancer… CONTINUE READING
