T he role of angiogenesis in cancer is now so well accepted that it’s easy to forget how young the field is. New discoveries still have the power to change how people think about blood vessels and cancer. The latest example: deltalike ligand 4 (DLL4). DLL4 is generating intense interest because it offers a new way to use angiogenesis, or new blood vessel formation, against tumors. At least three biotech companies are now racing each other to be fi rst in the clinic with a DLL4-blocking drug, a… 
Anticancer therapeutics: a surge of new developments increasingly target tumor and stroma.
The role of tumor-associated macrophages in tumor vascularization
TLDR
The potential of targeting pro-angiogenic TAMs, or reprograming TAMs toward a tumoricidal and angiostatic phenotype, to promote normalization of the tumor vasculature to enhance the outcome of cancer therapies is discussed.
Crosstalk of VEGF and Notch pathways in tumour angiogenesis: therapeutic implications.
TLDR
A recent flurry of findings indicate that DLL4/Notch signalling decreases angiogenesis by suppressing endothelial tip cell formation but significantly reduces the growth of VEGF-sensitive and V EGF-resistant tumours.
Class IIa HDAC inhibition reduces breast tumours and metastases through anti-tumour macrophages
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in vivo TMP195 treatment alters the tumour microenvironment and reduces tumour burden and pulmonary metastases by modulating macrophage phenotypes, and introduces class IIa HDAC inhibition as a means to harness the anti-tumour potential of macrophages to enhance cancer therapy.
Role of Notch signaling in colorectal cancer.
TLDR
The authors reviewed the current understanding and research findings of the role of Notch signaling in CRC and discussed the possible Notch-targeting approaches in CRC.
Bloomsbury report on mouse embryo phenotyping: recommendations from the IMPC workshop on embryonic lethal screening
TLDR
The outcome of a workshop to discuss developing a phenotyping pipeline for the investigation of embryonic lethal knockout lines for basic and translational research summarises the vital scientific importance of phenotypesing embryonic lethal mouse strains.
Bloomsbury report on mouse embryo phenotyping: recommendations from the IMPC workshop on embryonic lethal screening
TLDR
Current international efforts to examine gene function in the mouse provide a unique opportunity to pinpoint genes that are involved in embryogenesis, owing to the emergence of embryonic lethal knockout mutants.
