Zebrafish model:worth considering indefining tumor angiogenesis

May 20, 2010

MoshalKS,Ferri-LagneauKF,LeungT. Zebrafish model:worth considering indefining tumor angiogenesis. Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine. 2010 May;20(4):114-9. Abstract The process of angiogenesis is essential for tumor progression and metastasis; however, antiangiogenesis therapy-induced hypoxia and inflammation are perhaps the driving force for tumor escape and metastasis formation, thereby compromising its efficacy. This warrants the complete understanding of the molecular and […]
