Abstract

Angiogenesis inhibitors target a tumor's need to obtain nourishment from the host. In general, they are predicted to be chiefly cytostatic - that is, they stabilize tumors and perhaps prevent metastasis rather than being curative. Nevertheless, it remains conceivable that these agents may trigger tumor cell death. Novel evaluative strategies will be essential to define their potential roles.
