Mechanisms and Therapeutic Circumvention of Evasive Resistance to Anti-angiogenic Cancer Therapy

Mechanism-based anti-angiognic therapy has demonstrable efficacy against tumors in mouse models of cancer and in patients. However, the duration of beneficial effects is typically limited, a consequence of an adaptive response termed 'evasive resistance' whereby tumors activate mechanisms that circumvent the angiogenic blockade and enable resumption of tumor growth and malignant progression. By understanding and then therapeutically targeting mechanisms of evasive resistance, it may be possible to render anti-angiogenic therapy more enduring.
