Project: Effect of host factors on the genesis and behaviour of malignant tumors. Development of new therapeutic strategies.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-01
- The present concerted project develops strategies for the use of host cells as targets for the treatment of malignant tumors. The systems used are: 1) myofibroblast-induced invasion of colon cancer cells in vivo and in vitro (RUG) 2) genesis of desmoids in FAP patients (KUL) 3) coagulation and neoangiogenesis in colon cancer (UIA) experimental and clinical stromal bone marrow cells and multiple myeloma (VUB).
