Tumors Subconfluent ID8 or ID8 VEGF cultures were trypsinized, washed twice, and cells harvested by centrifugation at 1,000 g for 5 min. A single cell suspension was prepared in PBS mixed with an equal volume of cold Matrigel at 10 mg ml. ARQ 197 ic50 A total volume of 0. 5 ml containing 1 × 106 ID8 or ID8 Vegf cells was injected subcutaneously into the flank of 6 week old C57BL6 mice, Tumors were detectable two weeks later and tumor size was meas ured weekly thereafter using a Vernier caliper. Tumor vol umes were calculated by the formula V 1 2 2, where L is length and W is width, Treatments were initiated four teen days after tumor inoculation and were carried out for 6 weeks. After listed time periods, mice were euthanized, and tumors were removed and snap frozen in liquid nitro gen.

Tumor microvascular density Snap frozen tumors and Matrigel purchase AZD1152-HQPA plugs were stored at 80 C; embedded in OCT compound, frozen in liquid nitrogen; and cut with a cryo stat into 8 m sections. For immunofluorescent staining, sections were sequentially incubated in 5% horse serum; biotin labeled anti mouse CD31 antibody, and avidin FITC or avidin Cy5, All sections were imaged using an upright Nikon E 600 Eclipse microscope equipped with a Bio Rad 1024 ES confocal system. Images were acquired through Cool SNAP Pro color digital cam era, All tumors were viewed at ×200 magnification. For Matrigel plugs, CD31 staining was ana lyzed using Image Pro Plus 4. 1 software, For microvessel density measurements, slides were scanned at low power to identify areas of high est vascularity.

Ten high powered fields were then selected randomly within these areas and microvessel densities were calculated 価格 AMN-107 based on the number of CD31 positive structures. At least three tumors from each group were examined in three sections. Sections from each tumor were separated by at least 200 m. Statistical methods A fixed effects analysis of variance was used for between group comparisons with the in vitro data and with the ECM data observed after 6 weeks of treatment. Means are reported with their standard errors.

To assess interactions between LD paclitaxel and antiangiogenic therapy with out assuming any specific functional form for tumor vol umes over time, we fit a functional linear model via weighted penalized least squares that included covariates for treatment with paclit axel, treatment with SU5416, ID8 Vegf, and all subse quent two and three way interactions, By not a priori assuming a form for the shape characterizing the changes in tumor volume over time, this smoothing spline based approach differs from a standard linear regression by avoiding the bias induced by deviations of the data from a nice parametric form and by allowing for the assessment of interactions over time Smoothing parameters used in the algorithm to estimate the parame ters in the functional linear model were selected using generalized maximum likelihood, while 95% Bayesian confidence intervals and likelihood ratio tests were used to perform inference, Results Low dose paclitaxel inhibits neovasculature formation in tumor free Matrigel The tumor free Matrigel model has been used as a suitable tool to measure the efficacy of antiangiogenic therapy in vivo.
