Antiangiogenesis remains a dynamic and evolving field in oncology. New therapeutic targets continue to emerge followed by the rapid development of new therapeutic agents to be investigated in clinical trials. Optimizing the therapeutic potential of antiangiogenic agents in combination with the other therapies in the armamentarium to fight cancer will be an on-going challenge. Antiangiogenic Agents in Cancer Therapy, Second Edition provides a current, up-dated perspective on the state of the art of angiogenesis and therapy with a compendium of scientific findings and approaches to the study of angiogenesis in cancer. Leaders in the field present chapters on such topics as the environmental influences and the genetic and physiologic abnormalities that mediate angiogenesis and its role in the progression of malignant disease, working models of tumor angiogenesis, and the role of angiogenesis inhibition in the therapy of malignant disease in humans. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Antiangiogenic Agents in Cancer Therapy, Second Edition is an ideal, valuable guide to the most recent advances in the field, and a collection that will be useful for many years to come.
