Decreased blood vessel leakage can improve cancer therapy, reduce tumor spread

Cancer therapy is often hampered by the accumulation of fluids in and around the tumor, which is caused by leakage from the blood vessels in the tumor. Researchers now show how leakage from blood vessels is regulated. They have identified a novel mechanism whereby leakage can be suppressed to improve the result of chemotherapy and reduce the spread of tumors in mice. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
