Significance of Stem Cells to Tumor Development Cancer stem cells remain a controversial topic and the criteria that define cancer stem cells are continuing to evolve. A recent surge in stem cell research has ignited a field of discovery into many human diseases including diabetes, neuropathologies, and cancer. By replacing specific differentiated cells that have either been lost or died, stem cell therapy proves to be a very... more...

Cancer drug discovery has been and continues to be a process of ingenuity, serendip­ ity, and dogged determination. In an effort to develop and discover better therapies against cancer, investigators all over the world have increased our knowledge of cell biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology. The goal has been to define therapeuti­ cally exploitable differences between normal and malignant cells. The result has been an increased understanding... more...

Leading experts summarize and synthesize the latest discoveries concerning the changes that occur in tumor cells as they develop resistance to anticancer drugs, and suggest new approaches to preventing and overcoming it. The authors review physiological resistance based upon tumor architecture, cellular resistance based on drug transport, epigenetic changes that neutralize or bypass drug cytotoxicity, and genetic changes that alter drug target... more...

Beverly Teicher and a panel of distinguished investigators survey the state-of-the-art of antiangiogenesis research from the lab bench to clinical trials. Timely and authoritative, the contributors summarize our current understanding of tumor growth and its dependence on vascular development, as well as the present status of antiangiogenic agents in preclinical and clinical development. In addition, the book also examines what is known about the... more...

The past 6 years since the first edition of this book have seen great progress in the development of genetically engineered mouse (GEM) models of cancer. These models are finding an important role in furthering our understanding of the biology of malignant disease. A comfortable position for GEM models in the routine conduct of screening for potential new therapeutics is coming more slowly but is coming. Increasing numbers of genetically engineered... more...


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... more...

This thoroughly updated and expanded second edition of Beverly Teicher's widely used classic survey provides a step-by-step guide to anticancer drug development from initial design through FDA approval. The authors have included new material on the use of high throughput screening in industry, on specialized in vitro/in vivo procedures employed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in preclinical drug evaluations, and on nonclinical testing to support... more...

Beverly A. Teicher and a panel of leading experts comprehensively describe for the first time in many years the state-of-the-art in animal tumor model research. The wide array of models detailed form the basis for the selection of compounds and treatments that go into clinical testing of patients, and include syngeneic models, human tumor xenograft models, orthotopic models, metastatic models, transgenic models, and gene knockout models. Synthesizing... more...
