To further investigate the role of CD11b+Gr1+ cells in refractoriness to anti-VEGF, we also treated the same tumors with mFlt(1-3)-IgG, a high affinity chimeric-soluble VEGFR-1 variant that not only neutralizes VEGF-A but also PlGF and VEGF-B ( 23). We saw no difference between anti-VEGF or mFlt(1-3)-IgG-treated groups in the efficiency of tumor formation or in the accumulation of CD11b+Gr1+ cells, suggesting that VEGFR-1 selective ligands do not compensate for the lack of VEGF-A, at least under these experimental circumstances. In apparent conflict with these conclusions, Fisher and colleagues ( 24) recently reported that targeting PlGF alone with neutralizing antibodies elicits significant antitumor effects in some anti-VEGF refractory models. Elucidating the reasons for such discrepancy will require further investigation. In addition, to address whether a lack of response to anti-VEGF might reflect a general refractoriness to other antitumor agents, we treated tumor-bearing mice with several ...

The treatment of the most common cancers (colon, breast, lung, liver and kidney) has recently added a new therapeutic class known as the anti-angiogenic. It was born from a better understanding of tumor growth requires the development of neo-vessels. These new vessels are of major importance for the viability of the tumor but also the birth of metastases. This neo-angiogenesis is complex and results from an imbalance between pro-angiogenic factors and anti-angiogenic factors. Growth factor VEGF and its receptors (VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3) are a way of survival of endothelial cells required for tumor neoangiogenesis. The anti-angiogenic drugs currently available on the market are bevacizumab (Avastin ®), sunitinib (Sutent ®) and sorafenib (Nexavar ®). The mechanism of anti-angiogenic action of these three main drugs are pharmacological inhibition of the VEGF pathway.. These new anti-angiogenic therapies, however, have significant adverse effects are common and some other more serious but ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Vascular Mimicry. T2 - A Novel Neovascularization Mechanism Driving Anti-Angiogenic Therapy (AAT) Resistance in Glioblastoma. AU - Angara, Kartik. AU - Borin, Thaiz Ferraz. AU - Arbab, Ali Syed. PY - 2017/8/1. Y1 - 2017/8/1. N2 - Glioblastoma (GBM) is a hypervascular neoplasia of the central nervous system with an extremely high rate of mortality. Owing to its hypervascularity, anti-angiogenic therapies (AAT) have been used as an adjuvant to the traditional surgical resection, chemotherapy, and radiation. The benefits of AAT have been transient and the tumors were shown to relapse faster and demonstrated particularly high rates of AAT therapy resistance. Alternative neovascularization mechanisms were shown to be at work in these resilient tumors to counter the AAT therapy insult. Vascular Mimicry (VM) is the uncanny ability of tumor cells to acquire endothelial-like properties and lay down vascular patterned networks reminiscent of host endothelial blood vessels. The VM channels ...
The central importance of angiogenesis and our understanding of how new blood vessels are formed have led to the development of novel antiangiogenic therapies. Although the number of agents in development has grown exponentially, only one phase III trial in breast cancer has been completed. In that study the addition of bevacizumab to capecitabine did not extend the progression-free survival of patients with refractory disease as compared with capecitabine monotherapy. Early enthusiasm for antiangiogenic therapy must give way to clinical reality. Our challenge now is to exploit better the activity of antiangiogenic agents seen in the early clinical studies.
The approval of the first antiangiogenic agent for clinical use in patients with colorectal carcinoma has taught us many lessons, the most important of which is that these agents must be used in combination with agents that target cancer cells to have an appreciable impact on patient survival. Increasing the dose of antiangiogenic agent may harm normal tissues and destroy too much of the tumor vasculature, leading to hypoxia and poor drug delivery in the tumor and to toxicity in normal tissues. However, optimal doses and schedules of these reagents tailored to the angiogenic profile of tumors can normalize tumor vasculature and microenvironment without harming normal tissue.. At least three major challenges must be met before therapies based on this vascular normalization model can be successfully translated to the clinic. The first challenge is to determine which other direct or indirect antiangiogenic therapies lead to vascular normalization. In principle, any therapy that restores the balance ...
The antiangiogenic effects need to be fine-tuned and adapted over time to obtain the best antitumor response possible because suboptimal antiangiogenic therapy might, in some cases, lead to potentially more aggressive tumor progression (23). Combined with conventional cytotoxic drugs, the extent of the antiangiogenic activity might determine whether the combination is synergistic, for instance, by transient normalization of the tumor vasculature resulting in temporarily better oxygenation and drug deposition (24), otherwise, the combination could be antagonistic. A further layer of complexity derives from the finding that most conventional, and many targeted antitumor agents, exert accidental antiangiogenic effects (25). Indeed, if given in a metronomic fashion (i.e., administered frequently in comparatively low doses over prolonged periods with no prolonged breaks), traditional cytotoxic drugs might act primarily via antiangiogenic mechanisms that are accompanied by only low-grade toxicity ...

DNA methylation and histone deacetylation are two key epigenetic modifications that play central role in regulation of gene expression. Several studies have shown that histone deacetylases (HDAC) and DNA methyltransferases (DNMT) inhibitors are potent anti-angiogenic compounds. Though combination of HDAC and DNMT inhibitors are now being examined in clinical trials of hematological malignancies, little work has been done to understand the effect of this combination on physiological and tumoral angiogenesis. We have designed and tested a family of twin drugs with intrinsic HDAC and DNMT inhibitory activities in relevant models of angiogenesis in vitro (Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells - HUVEC and aortic ring) and in vivo (chick chorioallantoic ...
In chapter 1, we sought a proof of principle to confirm that the blocking of angiogenesis does indeed improve cartilage formation when using genetically-modified nasal chondrocytes (NCs) or antiangiogenic peptides associated with NCs. For this purpose, NCs were genetically-modified to express mouse soluble VEGF receptor-2 (sFlk-1) or were associated with an antiangiogenic peptide in order to have their chondrogenic capacity assessed in vitro and in vivo. Improved cartilage regeneration could be observed after in vivo implantation of NCs in an ectopic nude mouse model. Whereas the anti-angiogenic approaches did not improve chondrogenesis in vitro, frank chondrogenesis occured in vivo only in the constructs generated by NCs expressing sFlk-1 or treated with the peptide. Blood vessel ingrowth was significantly hampered in the anti-angiogenic experimental groups when compared with naïve NCs, which correlated with chondrogenis improvement. Strikingly, the anti-angiogenic effect was even more evident ...
View more ,Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Despite extensive research cancer is predicated to be the leading cause of death by 2020. One element of cancer development, which has been successfully targeted clinically resulting in impaired tumour growth and spread (metastases), is the process by which tumours enroll vasculature. This is referred to as tumour angiogenesis. However, the problems currently associated with current anti-angiogenic therapies (eg. Avastin) is that they are prone to adaptive resistance (the process of initial response, followed by hypoxia and rapid relapse). Furthermore, such therapies target normal aspects of human biology, including the immune system, wound healing and vascular homeostasis. This leads to unintended and adverse side-affects. Bone marrow (BM) derived Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) play a critical role in tumour angiogenesis and adaptive resistance. Therefore, targeting these cells offers a novel anti-angiogenic therapy, which ...

New blood vessel formation, or angiogenesis, is a critical hallmark of solid tumor growth and anti-angiogenic agents have become a vital component of current cancer treatment regimens. The appeal of anti-angiogenic therapy can be attributed to several advantages of targeting the endothelial cells that line blood vessels, rather than the tumor cells themselves. First, endothelial cells are directly exposed to circulating blood, facilitating drug delivery and enabling the use of high molecular weight therapeutics. Second, each vessel capillary supports hundreds of tumor cells. Third, endothelial cells are genetically stable and their ability to develop resistance may be limited. Finally, this type of therapy should be applicable to a wide variety of tumor types. Several anti-angiogenic agents that target the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) pathway have been approved for the treatment of cancer. However, tumors can exploit alternative angiogenesis mechanisms when the VEGF pathway is ...
Anti-angiogenic compounds, like sunitinib, targeting the VEGF receptor have shown activity in various tumor types. Currently no biomarkers are available to select patients or may function as early response predictor. Previously, we showed that radiolabeled ranibizumab, an anti-VEGF Fab tracer with high affinity for all VEGF-A isoforms, allows non-invasive, frequent, quantitative and rapid insight in VEGF levels in the tumor and its microenvironment. Therefore, radiolabeled ranibizumab was used to monitor sunitinib treatment to obtain insight in locoregional changes in tracer uptake during therapy. Method: Direct cytotoxicity of sunitinib was evaluated in vitro in a high VEGF producing human A2780 ovarian tumor cell line. Nude mice were inoculated with A2780 cells. When the tumor was established, mice were treated 1) once daily with sunitinib (60 mg/kg ip) or vehicle (ip) for 7 days followed by a stop week, thus reflecting the patient regimen, or 2) sunitinib/vehicle was continued for 7 days. ...
Negative feedback is a crucial physiological regulatory mechanism, but no such regulator of angiogenesis has been established. Here we report a novel angiogenesis inhibitor that is induced in endothelial cells (ECs) by angiogenic factors and inhibits angiogenesis in an autocrine manner. We have performed cDNA microarray analysis to survey VEGF-inducible genes in human ECs. We characterized one such gene, KIAA1036, whose function had been uncharacterized. The recombinant protein inhibited migration, proliferation, and network formation by ECs as well as angiogenesis in vivo. This inhibitory effect was selective to ECs, as the protein did not affect the migration of smooth muscle cells or fibroblasts. Specific elimination of the expression of KIAA1036 in ECs restored their responsiveness to a higher concentration of VEGF. The expression of KIAA1036 was selective to ECs, and hypoxia or TNF-α abrogated its inducible expression. As this molecule is preferentially expressed in ECs, we designated it ...
A team of CNIO researchers, in collaboration with the Spanish Oncology Genitourinary Group (SOGUG) and the University Hospitals Leuven (Belgium), has discovered various potential biomarkers predictive of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) response in metastatic renal cancer. In their study, published in JCI Insight, the researchers identify various miRNAs that define a group of patients refractory to TKI treatment -a type of anti-angiogenic agent widely used to treat renal cell carcinoma- and with poor prognosis. The study, conducted on 139 patient samples, is the most robust to date in this tumour type.

Historically, VEGFR-1 was assigned a role as a nonsignaling decoy receptor because of the low activity and embryonic dispensability of its tyrosine kinase function. More recently, its role has become more interesting because VEGFR-1 signaling has been reported both to promote (6, 7) and suppress (8) VEGF-A-driven angiogenesis. We report not only that PlGF-1 inhibits inflammatory CNV, extending the scope of VEGFR-1 function, but also what we believe is the unprecedented observation that VEGF-A itself can suppress angiogenesis. Multiple lines of evidence emerging from genetic ablation, antibody neutralization, and receptor-selective ligand activation all strongly support the thesis that the antiangiogenic action of VEGF-A is mediated by VEGFR-1. Previously, VEGF-A has been reported to reduce VEGF-E-induced VEGFR-2 tyrosine kinase phosphorylation in capillary endothelial cells in vitro, raising the provocative hypothesis that VEGF-A could limit its own angiogenic activity through VEGFR-1 (29). We ...
Purpose: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an angiogenic cytokine which is important in developmental blood vessel formation. In kidneys of embryonic to adult humans and mice, VEGF is detected in epithelial cells of the glomeruli and endothelial cells of glomeruli, tubules and peritubular capillaries. Some low birth weight (LBW) infants are known to have a decrease in nephron number and kidney size even after catch up growth. In order to find the potential therapy of infants with impaired renal development, we first generated the murine model, and investigated the effect of retinoic acid (RA). Materials and Methods: An angiogenesis inhibitor (SU1498) was injected subcutaneously to day 3 C57BL/6 newborn mice to create a model of arrested renal development. RA (2g/kg) was injected intraperitoneally for 10 consecutive days for the duration of renal development. Morphometric analysis of the renal cortex and glomerulus using light microscopic findings and electron microscopic examination ...

We used semiautomated segmentation software to quantify total as well as the focal and diffuse components of leakage before and after anti-VEGF therapy. Anti-VEGF therapy effectively reduced total leakage as well as diffuse and focal leakage. However, the absolute and percent reduction in diffuse leakage was significantly greater than the reduction in focal leakage. These findings suggested that diffuse leakage is significantly more responsive to a moderate course of anti-VEGF therapy (approximately 5 injections on average). Numerous investigators have subtyped DME as diffuse or focal according to various criteria and using variable tools, which include biomicroscopy,21-29 fundus photography.23,24,27,28,30,31 FA,31-40 and OCT.41-44 To date, the utility of classifying DME based on FA has been limited by inherent subjectivity, multiple definitions and challenges in reproducibility.15,19 Fluorescein angiography has been used to distinguish diffuse and focal DME in numerous studies31,34,36,38,40 and ...
2-methoxyoestradiol (2-MeOE2) is a potent anti-angiogenic agent. Its 3- and 17-sulphamoylated derivatives have been demonstrated to induce G2-M cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in breast cancer cells in vitro as well as tumour regression in rats in vivo with greater potency than the parent oestrogen. To determine whether the anti-cancer properties of these derivatives can be synergistically enhanced with low-dose TNF-alpha co-treatment, we investigated the effects of these treatments in adult human fibroblasts and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Treatment of fibroblasts with 0.1 microM 2-methoxyoestradiol-3,17-bis sulphamate (2-MeOE2bisMATE) but not 2-MeOE2 caused a reversible morphology change and induced G2-M arrest (from 12 to 33%) but not subsequent apoptosis. In contrast, treatment of HUVECs did not induce morphology change or G2-M arrest. Using a nucleosomal ELISA assay, we showed that TNF-alpha (20 ng/ml) combination treatment synergistically increases 0.1 microM 2-MeOE2bisMATE
Advanced imaging techniques may be able to distinguish which patients tumors will respond to treatment with antiangiogenic drugs and which will not.

While it is true that the limitations of anti-VEGF therapy are becoming more evident as our experience with these agents increases, it is also undeniable that a subset of cancer patients treated with bevacizumab do show objective clinical responses and improved survival. However, we have yet to identify predictive biomarkers that have been validated in multiple, independent studies and can reliably distinguish patients who are likely to respond from those who will not. The identification of such biomarkers will be critical in harnessing the full potential of anti-VEGF therapy and in minimizing the rates of adverse side effects. The design and implementation of clinical trials based on proven, predictive biomarkers should allow for the enrichment of proper patient cohorts and facilitate the understanding of therapeutic mechanisms behind anti-VEGF therapy.. Several cytokines have been proposed in the literature as a possible predictive biomarker for anti-VEGF therapy. However, VEGF-A, the target ...

The identification of patients likely to respond to antiangiogenic treatment has high priority. In this translational study, we analyzed the predictive value of the angiogenic couple, EGFL7 and miR126, in primary tumors from patients with mCRC treated with first-line chemotherapy and bevacizumab. The results indicated that the EGFL7 VA has a predictive value in this setting.. We analyzed two cohorts of patients with mCRC. The only difference between the two investigated cohorts was a higher fraction of patients with resected tumors compared with endoscopic biopsies in cohort 2. This difference, however, did not influence any of the clinical endpoints and, thus, allowed us to consider the two patient cohorts as one when analyzing the investigated parameters.. The present results demonstrate a significant difference in median EGFL7 VA in the tumor resections according to RR. Patients with low EGFL7 VA were more likely to respond to chemotherapy combined with anti-VEGF-A. With these findings, we ...

Studies comparing the effect of antiangiogenic agents targeting different angiogenic pathways are sparse. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of properdistatin and sunitinib treatment in a preclinical model of malignant melanoma. Properdistatin is a small peptide derived from the thrombospondin-1 domain of the plasma protein properdin, and sunitinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting several receptors including the vascular endothelial growth factor receptors. R-18 human melanoma xenografts growing in dorsal window chambers were treated with properdistatin, sunitinib, or vehicle. Parameters describing the morphology of tumor vasculature were assessed from high-resolution transillumination images, and BST (blood supply time; the time needed for arterial blood to flow from the main supplying artery to downstream microvessels) was assessed from first-pass imaging movies recorded after a bolus of fluorescence-labeled dextran had been administered intravenously.

Corneal expression levels of the proinflammatory and pro(lymph)angiogenic cytokines IL-1β, TNFα, VEGF-A, VEGF-C, and VEGF-D were analyzed by real-time PCR after suture placement and treatment with serum eyedrops, bevacizumab eyedrops, or a combination of both. After 2 days of treatment, only bevacizumab affected IL-1β expression (serum mean of 95.6%, n.s.; bevacizumab mean of 74.3%, P , 0.01; and serum and bevacizumab mean of 96.4%, n.s.), whereas after 7 days of treatment, all treatment groups had significantly reduced IL-1β expression (serum mean of 48.4%, P , 0.001; bevacizumab mean of 58.9%, P , 0.001; and serum and bevacizumab mean of 53.2%, P , 0.001) (Fig. 5, top left). After 2 days of treatment, TNFα expression was significantly impaired only by bevacizumab (serum mean of 106.1%, n.s.; bevacizumab mean of 68.4%, P , 0.05; and serum and bevacizumab mean of 93.0%, n.s.), while after 7 days of treatment, the combination of serum and bevacizumab also showed considerable inhibition of ...
In this issue of the BJO, Boyd et al (pp 440 and 448) present data that confirm an important role for vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) and, to a lesser extent, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in angiogenic growth in and around uveal melanomas. Using a range of approaches, they assayed these factors in ocular fluids and postmortem specimens from patients, grew co-cultures of tumour cells and endothelium in vitro, and concluded that anti-angiogenic therapy may be a worthwhile approach for treatment of eyes harbouring uveal melanomas. In many of these tumours VEGF-A was expressed at high levels, and this was especially true in patients who developed secondary retinal and iris neovascularisation following ionising radiation treatment of their tumours. VEGF-A expression was shown to be particularly high in the ocular fluids of this subset of patients and Boyd et al conclude that this phenomenon makes the case for anti-VEGF-A treatment as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of ...
The dependence of tumor growth and metastasis on blood vessels makes tumor angiogenesis a rational target for therapy. Strategies have been pursued to inhibit neovascularization and to destroy existing tumor vessels, or both. These include direct targeting of endothelial cells, and indirect targeting by inhibiting the release of proangiogenic growth factors by cancer or stromal cells. Many patients benefit from antiangiogenic therapies; thus, development of noninvasive biomarkers of disease response and relapse is a crucial objective to aid in their management. A number of non-invasive tools are described with their potential benefits and limitations. We review currently available candidate biomarkers of anti-angiogenic agent effect. Including these markers into clinical trials may provide insight into appropriate dosing for desired biological effects, appropriate timing of additional therapy, and prediction of individual response. This has important consequences for the clinical use of angiogenesis

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related mortality in the United States (14). Given its biologic complexity and poor prognosis, it is important to evaluate novel treatment strategies that might potentially improve treatment outcome in patients. The essential dietary trace element, selenium, has been shown to act as an effective chemopreventive agent reducing the risk and mortality associated with cancer (15, 16). MSC is an organoselenium compound that has been shown to exert potent antiangiogenic activity in vivo (8, 9, 17, 18). The antiangiogenic effects of selenium have previously been demonstrated in ectopic subcutaneous models of human head and neck, colorectal and lung cancer (8, 9).. Monitoring of subcutaneous (ectopic) tumors in small animals can be performed easily through the combination of visual inspection and simple caliper-based measurements of tumor dimension. In contrast, tumors established in orthotopic tumor sites cannot be assessed by visual examination ...

Healing effects were examined by identifying tumor web host survival time, evaluating tumor development and angiogenic activity Carbidopa by quantitative analyses of histological arrangements, and calculating the appearance of angiogenesis-related genes by quantitative PCR. Outcomes Meningeal A-07 melanomas demonstrated higher appearance of VEGF-A than meningeal D-12 melanomas, whereas the appearance of IL8 and ANGPT2, two essential angiogenesis motorists in melanoma, was higher in D-12 than in A-07 tumors. Bevacizumab treatment inhibited tumor angiogenesis and extended host success in mice with A-07 tumors however, not in mice with D-12 tumors. Meningeal A-07 tumors in bevacizumab-treated mice paid out for the decreased VEGF-A activity by up-regulating a lot of angiogenesis-related ...
There is a very strong link between the vascularization of a tumour and the spread of the disease, both locally and to distant sites (Gimbrone et al., 1974, J. Natl. Cancer Inst. 52, 413-27; Muthukkaruppan et al, 1982, J. Natl. Cancer Inst. 69, 699-704; Ellis & Fiddler, 1995, Lancet 346, 388-9). A tumour becomes vascularized by a process known as angiogenesis. Tumour angiogenesis is initiated by the release of diffusible substances by the tumour, whereby neighbouring capillary vessels are stimulated to grow and eventually penetrate the tumour. Anti-angiogenesis has been proposed as a potential strategy for the treatment of cancer (Folkman, 1995, Nature Med. 1, 21-31; Harris et al, 1996, Breast Cancer Res. Treat. 38, 97-108). In this paper, a mathematical model of the development of the tumour vasculature is presented. By suitable manipulation of the model parameters, we simulate various anti-angiogenesis strategies and we examine the roles that haptotaxis and chemotaxis may play during the ...
Sulfamoylation of 2-methoxyestrone (2-MeOE1) was shown previously to enhance its potency as an anti-proliferative agent against breast cancer cells. We have examined the ability of a series of 2-methoxyestradiol (2-MeOE2) and 2-ethylestradiol (2-EtE2) sulfamates to inhibit angiogenesis in vitro. 2-MeOE2 bis-sulfamate and 2-EtE2 sulfamate were potent inhibitors of human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) proliferation with IC(50) values of 0.05 microM and 0.01 microM, respectively. A novel co-culture system, in which endothelial cells were cultured in a matrix of human dermal fibroblasts, was also used to assess the anti-angiogenic potential of these drugs. In this system endothelial cells proliferate and migrate through the culture matrix to form tubule structures. Whereas 2-MeOE2 (1.0 microM) caused a small reduction in tubule formation, both 2-MeOE2 bis-sulfamate (0.1 microM) and 2-EtE2 sulfamate (0.1 microM) almost completely abolished tubule formation. 2-MeOE2 bis-sulfamate and 2-EtE2 sulfamate

Tumour development is often accompanied by the formation of new blood vessels from existing vasculature. This new intratumoral blood network is driven by the process of angiogenesis, providing the essential nutrients for growth, invasion and metastasis. At the present time, it is well established that inhibitors of angiogenesis prevent the growth and progression of tumours, offering a new therapeutic approach for treatment of cancer. Several studies have already showed that the N-terminal fragment of the human prolactin, 16k-Da PRL, has a potent anti-angiogenic activity. Recently, research groups have demonstrated that the 16k-Da PRL inhibits tumour development in animal models. Despite the fact that several studies leading to improve our knowledge of 16k-Da PRL ...

Understanding of structural and functional characteristics of the vascular microenvironment in gliomas and the impact of antiangiogenic treatments is essential for developing better therapeutic strategies. Although a number of methods exist in which this process can be studied experimentally, no single noninvasive test has the capacity to provide information concerning both microvascular function and morphology. The purpose of present study is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a novel three-dimensional ?R2-based microscopic magnetic resonance angiography (3D ?R2-µMRA) technique for longitudinal imaging of tumor angiogenesis and monitoring the effects of antiangiogenic treatment in rodent brain tumor models. Using 3D ?R2-µMRA, a generally consistent early pattern of vascular development in gliomas was revealed, in which a single feeding vessel was visualized first (arteriogenesis), followed by sprouting angiogenesis. Considerable variability of the tumor-associated vasculature was then ...
Kaempferol offers been reported to reduce the risk of ovarian malignancy, but the mechanism is not completely understood. cells, and better characterized kaempferol toward chemoprevention. angiogenesis caused by ovarian malignancy cells, and the pathways involve regulation on HIF1- and ERR- gene expressions (Luo et al., 2009). Anti-angiogenesis is probably the most feasible strategy for current chemoprevention of ovarian cancers, given the fact that these early-stage tiny tumors cannot be successfully diagnosed but their continued development desperately depends on the establishment of a new blood vessel network (Bertl et al., 2006; Carmeliet et al., 2000). Tumor-free adults, on the other hand, have virtually zero need for angiogenesis in normal situations (Fotsis et al., 1993; Glade-Bender et al., 2003). Thus our findings about kaempferols anti-angiogenesis effects (Luo et al., 2009) become more relevant in this context. Nevertheless, the previously investigated pathways for kaempferol are not ...

Since VEGF is known to activate FAK - which plays a role in cellular signaling - in the endothelial cells that line pulmonary blood vessels, the researchers analyzed levels of the enzyme at the sites of induced vascular leakiness and found them to be elevated. Blocking the activity of FAK in lung endothelial cells reduced both vascular permeability and the adhesion of metastatic cells to those tissues. Additional genetic experiments revealed that FAK produces these effects through increased local expression of the cellular adhesion molecule E-selectin, says Dai Fukumura, MD, PhD, of the Steele Lab, a co-senior author of the report.. Co-senior author Dan G. Duda, DMD, PhD, also of the Steele Lab, adds, Anti-metastatic therapy is the ultimate frontier for cancer therapy, but existing treatments - both traditional chemotherapy and newer antiangiogenesis agents - have limited effectiveness in preventing the development of metastases. Our findings provide proof of principle that FAK inhibition is ...

Pazopanib is a novel antiangiogenic inhibitor of tyrosine kinases (TKIs) with high activity against vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR1-3), platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFRα+β), and c-Kit. Here we report on a patient with prostate cancer and type 2 diabetes whose glycemic control has been significantly improved with pazopanib during anticancer therapy and describe a potential mechanism of action.. The 73-year-old patient was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1999 and underwent prostatectomy and radiotherapy, sequential hormonal therapies, and, in 2008, first line chemotherapy. Due to disease progression he was enrolled in a phase I trial with pazopanib (400 mg p.o. daily, day 1 to 21 every 3 weeks) in combination with epirubicine (75 mg/m2 i.v. q3w every 3 weeks). Type 2 diabetes was diagnosed when the patient was 69 years and weighed 103 kg (BMI 33.6 kg/m2). He was treated with glibenclamide resulting in moderate to poor glycemic control (A1C 7.5-10.9%).. In ...
One of the most recent methods that is being developed for the delivery of anti-angiogenesis factors to tumour regions in cancer sufferers is using genetically modified bacteria that are able to colonize solid tumors in vivo. This method involves genetically engineering bacterial species such as Clostridium, Bifidobacteria and Salmonella by adding the genes for anti-angiogenic factors such as endostatin or IP10 chemokine and removing any harmful virulence genes. A target can also be added to the outside of the bacteria so that they are sent to the correct organ in the body. The bacteria can then be injected into the patient and they will locate themselves to the tumor site, where they release a continual supply of the desired drugs in the vicinity of a growing cancer mass, preventing it from being able to gain access to oxygen and ultimately starving the cancer cells.[11] This method has been shown to work both in vitro and in vivo in mice models, with very promising results.[12] It is expected ...
Disclosed is a method for monitoring early treatment response of a cancer treatment comprising measuring by magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), for example, proton MRS, the amount of Choline present in the tissue adjoining or surrounding the cancerous tissue before and after treatment; the treatment comprises administration of an angiogenesis inhibitor, for example, a VEGF inhibitor, whereby a decrease in the amount of Choline after treatment is indicative of a positive response. The decrease in the amount of Choline represents the decrease in the internal cell membrane as a result of down regulation of the organelles and their secretory granules and their transport vesicles. Disclosed also is a method for determining effectiveness of an angiogenesis inhibitor in the treatment of cancer. Also disclosed are methods of monitoring early treatment response in diseases where an angiogenesis effector, i.e., an inhibitor or promoter of angiogenesis, is employed. Also disclosed is a method for monitoring
