Acute elevation of plasma VEGF in mice elicited similar mobilization of CEP. AC133 becomes downregulated as endothelial cells differentiate and mature. Bone marrow derived CEP are rapidly incorporated into tumor vasculature in proliferating tumors (Lyden et al. 2001), although the number of endothelial cells derived from CEP is tumor type dependent. Mancuso et al. (2001) have described an increase in circulating endothelial cells (CEC) in patients with cancer compared with healthy controls. In a mouse model of lymphoma, decreases in CEC were measured following continuous infusion of an angiogenesis inhibitor (Capillo et al.

Randomized Phase II trials of ZD6474 are open in combination with docetaxel and as a single agent compared to gefitinib in platinum refractory NSCLC. A randomized Phase II trial examining ZD6474 in SCLC patients with limited or extensive disease who have achieved remission after induction chemotherapy and radiotherapy is also under development by the National Cancer Institute of Canada and will open shortly (Shepherd and Sridhar 2003). Finally, ribozyme constructs that target VEGF receptor mRNA are also under development.

2003). Therefore, there is considerable interest in CEC measurement as a potential marker of angiogenesis that may be applicable for serial assessment of anti-angiogenic therapy. However, additional data in a variety of cancers are needed to confirm the reproducibility of the methodology. In addition, the correlation of this parameter with clinical outcome needs to be determined to establish its utility. Finally, a range of noninvasive imaging technologies including ultrasound, positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT), and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are available, or under development, that have the potential to measure various aspects of tumor vasculature, angiogenesis, and their relation to tumor metabolism, proliferation, and growth.
