Basic Mechanisms and Cancer Therapy
Tumor angiogenesis is one of the most prominent mechanisms driving tumor development and progression. This book is written by internationally renowned experts. Part 1 describes the basic mechanisms. Tumor-angiogenic signaling pathways are presented as new potential targets for anti-angiogenic therapy. Part 2 reviews the efforts made to validate new targets and to show efficacy in animals. Part 3 is devoted to the clinical development of the novel anti-angiogenic drugs and their use in clinical practice.
From the reviews:
"The chapters in Tumor Angiogenesis are divided into four sections … . Tumor Angiogenesis is an outstanding overview of the basic science and translational aspects of angiogenesis. … To fully capitalize on antiangiogenic therapy, we must continue to have an open dialogue between basic scientists and clinical investigators. This book will serve that purpose, not only for graduate students and new investigators in the field, but also for experienced investigators." (Lee M. Ellis, The New England Journal of Medicine, May, 2008)
