Therapeutiques antiangiogeniques en cancerologie by Sandrine Faivre

By Sandrine Faivre

Le r?le fondamental de l’angiogen?se dans l. a. croissance et l. a. diss?mination tumorale est connu depuis maintenant plus de 30 ans. Nous disposons depuis peu de m?dicaments anti-angiog?niques efficaces sur de nombreuses tumeurs. Leur utilisation requiert une bonne connaissance de leur mode d’action, leurs effets secondaires, leurs symptoms et leur position dans l. a. strat?gie th?rapeutique. Cet ouvrage est donc divis? en trois issues: - Il est d'abord rappel? le r?le vital de l’angiogen?se tumorale, les moyens disponibles pour l’?valuer sur des pr?l?vements histologiques, ses modalit?s pratiques d’utilisation et les effets secondaires des m?dicaments anti-angiog?niques.- Puis les r?sultats th?rapeutiques obtenus avec les anticorps anti-VEGF et les inhibiteurs de tyrosine kinase anti-VEGFR sont d?taill?s pour chacune des tumeurs.- Enfin, il est discut? le positionnement de ces nouvelles mol?cules dans los angeles strat?gie multidisciplinaire vis-?-vis des autres modalit?s de traitement.
