CNIO researchers describe a new target for developing anti-angiogenic and anti-tumoral therapies
Date:6/8/2012

Researchers from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), led by Jorge L. Martnez-Torrecuadrada from the Proteomics Unit, have demonstrated that the antibody-based blocking of ephrinB2, a protein involved in angiogenesis and lymphoangiogenesis, may represent an effective strategy for the development of antiangiogenic and antitumoural therapies.

The results of this study appeared in this month's issue of Blood, the journal of the American Society of Hematology.

CNIO researchers generated highly-specific human antibodies against ephrin-B2 using a phage display approach. These specific antibodies were able to suppress endothelial cell migration and tube formation in in vitro assays. Also, systemic treatment of mice xenografted with pancreatic, lung or colon carcinoma cells resulted in a significant reduction in the amount of blood and lymphatic vessels.

Concomitantly, a drastic inhibition of the tumour growth was observed in every xenograft mouse model used. Therefore, these results validated ephrinB2 as a potential therapeutic target in tumour angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis and showed that the ephrinB2-specific antibodies developed in this study may be suitable as leads for the development of new improved antiangiogenic therapies, which can be used alone or can complement or synergise with other established antiangiogenic therapies of application in cancer or other angiogenesis-related pathologies.

The angiogenesis process

Angiogenesis is a complex process by which new blood vascular vessels arise from pre-existing ones. In adulthood and under physiological conditions, this process only occurs in some circumstances, such as wound healing or in the menstrual cycle, but it is also an important factor in several pathologies such as cancer, in which the tumour promotes the formation of new blood vessels. This new vasculature provides the tumour with oxygen and nutrients, allowing these cells to
