Example text

While there is evidence, accumulated over the past 10 years, that correlates this parameter with angiogenic growth factor expression, tumor growth and the occurrence of distant metastases (Weidner et al. 1993; Takahashi et al. 1995; Mattern et al. 1996; McCulloch et al. 1995), there are important aspects of the process of angiogenesis that MVD does not reflect. For example, it does not measure the degree of vascular heterogeneity across the tumor, or the functions of the microvasculature such as blood flow or extent of tumor hypoxia.

2002; Khan et al. 2002; Lee et al. 2002; Massi et al. 2002; Papamichael 2001; Tanigawa et al. 1996). Many studies also have associated the peak vessel density as measured by MVD with a poor prognosis in NSCLC (Macchiarini et al. 1992; Yamazaki et al. 1994; Fontanini et al. 1995; Angeletti et al. 1996; Giatromanolaki et al. 1996; Harpole et al. 1996; Kawaguchi et al. 1997; Fontanini et al. 1997; Matsuyama et al. 1998; Duarte et al. 1998; Yuan et al. 2000; Cox et al. 2000; O’Byrne et al. 2000; Dazzi et al.

Several other VEGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors have entered clinical trials. All of these are oral agents D. W. Siemann et al. 20 with improved pharmacokinetic profiles compared with that of SU5416. Two are now in Phase III trials, vatalanib (PTK787/ZK 222584) and SU11248. These tyrosine kinase inhibitors have additional inhibitory activity on other kinase targets, some of which also influence angiogenesis. This may, in theory, be an advantage in improving efficacy over more specific therapies such as bevacizumab, but also potentially increases toxicity.
