Is there a role for angiogenesis inhibition in prostate cancer?

Is there a role for angiogenesis inhibition in prostate cancer? Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer and one of the most common causes of cancer death among men in European countries. In the last years, a large number of new drugs for treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) have been approved, others are still in an advanced stage of clinical testing. In this review, we provide an overview on new substances which act via modulation or inhibition of angiogenesis. Results and limitations from clinical studies as well as future needs for improvement of those agents in CRPC are critically discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png memo - Magazine of European Medical Oncology Springer Journals

Abstract

Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer and one of the most common causes of cancer death among men in European countries. In the last years, a large number of new drugs for treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) have been approved, others are still in an advanced stage of clinical testing. In this review, we provide an overview on new substances which act via modulation or inhibition of angiogenesis. Results and limitations from clinical studies as well as future needs for improvement of those agents in CRPC are critically discussed.
