Recently, two landmark reports on antiangiogenic therapy were published: Paez-Ribes and colleagues and Ebos and colleagues . The Board of the Metastasis Research Society (MRS) congratulates the authors for their informative articles that help to explain the puzzle of why antiangiogenic agents have had a relatively minor or no significant impact on patient survival. Using four model systems and several different strategies, these researchers showed that inhibition of angiogenesis reduced primary tumor growth and microvessel density in keeping with many earlier reports, but strikingly, accelerated invasion and metastasis.

27 citations in Scopus
26 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
