Antiangiogenesis by chemotherapeutic agents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many tumors are not curable because current treatments primarily target the tumor cells. Intratumoral endothelial cells, on the other hand, proliferate rapidly and are sensitive to the cytotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic agents. This review summarizes the literature concerning the antiangiogenic effects of these agents when administered alone or in combination with other angiogenesis inhibitors.
