Cancer Metastasis
« on: September 20, 2020, 04:30:35 pm »
Metastasis is the spread of cancer from the site of origin to another part of the body. It is the main cause of death in cancer patients. Hemangiogenesis (also known as angiogenesis) is the formation of new blood vessels from preexisting ones. Lymphangiogenesis formation of new lymph vessels from preexisting ones. Both processes are required for metastasis. While countless drugs have been developed to target tumor growth, comparatively little has been done to develop drugs that target metastasis. Although a few anti-angiogenic drugs have been developed, such as AvastinĀ® (bevacizumab) and AfinitorĀ® (everolimus), overall survival has improved very little. This is because most metastases occur following invasion of and dissemination through lymph vessels rather than blood vessels. If you are taking an anti-angiogenic drug, please have your oncologist consider adding lithium and bioavailable (this is key) Curcumin and Chrysin to inhibit lymphangiogenesis.
