Description

Summary: Autocrine VEGF signaling in tumor cells contributes to de-differentiation and function of tumor initiating/stem cells. NRP2 is the nexus of a signaling pathway that promotes de-differentiation and sustains tumor initiating/stem sells. Anti-NRP2 therapy is worth pursuing, especially for high-grade cancers. Therapeutic Abs are available. This presentation was part of the retreat mini-symposium entitled: Biomarker Discovery and Targeted Therapeutics in Cancer.
