abstract

  • Plasma angiogenic factors are increased in patients with colorectal cancer liver metastases and remain increased at least 3 months after partial hepatectomy. Measurement of certain factors before and after hepatic resection can predict recurrence. Targeted biological agents may counteract the tumor-promoting effects of these circulating factors on subclinical disease.
