Abstract

The doses of chemotherapy selected in clinical practice are routinely obtained by the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) approaches. It is believed that an increase in dose will lead to an increase in tumor response. The effect on angiogenesis is achieved by targeting Circulating Endothelial Cell(CEC). The effect on CEC is restricted to an antiangiogenic window in tumor cell line studies The challenge is to establish the optimal biological dose (OBD) of MC which would have maximized inhibiting effect on CEC.
