Control of Liver Metastasis by Intrahepatic Chemotherapy with Angiotensin II
For cancer chemotherapy the sensitivity of the tumor to the used drug and the delivery of effective concentrations of that drug to the target tumor tissues are important factors. Angiotensin II-induced hypertension chemotherapy is an experimental drug delivery system for augmenting the anticancer effects, using functional differences in the microcirculation between tumor and normal tissue . Blood flow in tumor tissue selectively increases when blood pressure is elevated by infusion of angiotensin II .
