Circulating endothelial progenitors and tumor resistance to vascular-targeting therapies
Acute mobilization of circulating endothelial progenitors has been implicated in tumor resistance to vascular-disrupting agents. In the current issue of Cancer Discovery, Taylor and colleagues provide novel insight into the kinetics of endothelial progenitor mobilization by vascular-disrupting agents in both mouse tumor models and cancer patients.
