Using TH-302 And Avastin For Treatment Resistant Glioblastoma

TH-302 is a novel small molecule hypoxia-targeted drug that is selectively activated by the low oxygen conditions believed to be induced in tumors by antiangiogenic therapies. Avastin is a monoclonal antibody that affects tumor vasculature (angiogenesis) and is used to treat glioblastoma in patients whose cancer has progressed after treatment. I like this approach because the two drugs have a synergistic effect when combined together that is more effective than either drug alone.
