Angiogenesis and Anti-Angiogenesis in Hematological by Domenico Ribatti

By Domenico Ribatti

It has been ordinarily approved that angiogenesis is enthusiastic about the pathogenesis of hematological malignancies, like acute and protracted leukemia, lymphoma, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasms and a number of myeloma. the level of angiogenesis within the bone marrow has been correlated with sickness burden, diagnosis and therapy consequence. Reciprocal confident and unfavourable interactions among tumor cells and bone marrow stromal cells, particularly hematopoietic stem cells, fibroblasts, osteoblasts/osteoclasts, endothelial cells, endothelial progenitor cells, T cells, macrophages and mast cells, mediated by way of an array of cytokines, receptors and adhesion molecules, modulate the angiogenic reaction in hematological tumors. extra lately, it's been emphasised the pro-angiogenic position of the so referred to as “vascular niche”, indicating a website wealthy in blood vessels the place endothelial cells and mural cells resembling pericytes and gentle muscle cells create a microenvironment that has effects on the habit of a number of stem and progenitor cells, in hematological malignancies.

AQP4 is also involved in migration of tumor cells. It was also documented that tumor microvasculature in PCNSL is extremely heterogeneous, confirming the importance of neoangiogenesis in their pathogenesis (Nico et al. 2012). 40 3 Angiogenesis in Lymphomas Fig. 1 Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) immunocytochemical expression in internal healthy (a) and in control (b) brain tissues and in primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) with high (c–g) and low (h–i) Ki-67 index. a, b Control brain sections showing a continuous perivascular AQP4 staining of glial endfeet surrounding ( arrow) and touching (a, arrowhead) the vessel wall.

2009) found correlations between higher MVD and T-ALL phenotype, high- hyper diploid leukemia (a criteria of good prognosis), and with blood cells count in childhood B-ALL, and showed that B-ALL patients had a worse outcome when having high MVD. These findings indicate that the prognostic value of angiogenesis may differ according to the subtypes of childhood ALL and is coupled to both the ALL genotype and phenotype. Overall, these data confirm the important and crucial role of angiogenesis in bone marrow of patients with ALL, the involvement of VEGF and FGF-2 as principal angiogenic cytokines, and it prognostic value.

2002). In myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), MVD has been investigated and VEGF and VEGFR-2 have been detected in myeloblasts and their expression was higher and correlated with MVD in high risk as compared to low risk patients (Bellamy et al. 2001b; Korkolopoulou et al. 2001). 5 Role of Matrix Metalloproteinases and Mast Cells The levels of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 and -2 (TIMP-1 and TIMP-2) and of MMP-2 were significantly higher, while MMP-9 levels were significantly lower in the bone marrow of ALL patients than in controls (Lin et al.
