The team of Dr. Janusz Rak, of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) at the Montreal Children's Hospital, including Dr. Khalid Al-Nedawi and Brian Meehan, has just discovered a new mechanism that tumours use to stimulate the growth of the blood vessels that feed them.
...
But this new discovery is much more targeted and represents a new direction in terms of therapy," said a delighted Dr. Rak.
... to starve tumours In fact, a family of molecules derived from annexin V seems to effectively fight this process and ultimately may help "starve" the tumour. "The molecule we used is effective both in vitro and in vivo. It prevents the formation of new blood vessels in mice with cancer and therefore strongly inhibits tumour growth," explained Dr. Rak.

Dr Janusz Rak graduated medicine and received his medical licence at the Medical Academy in Wroclaw, Poland.He received his PhD degree in tumor biology from the Ludwik Hirszfeld Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy, Polish Academy of Sciences in 1986 for studies on transplantable tumor models as predictors of treatment efficacy in cancer, changes in tumor-host interactions resulting from anti-cancer treatment, and interactions between tumor cells and the vasculature in the course of cancer metastasis.
In 1988, as a recipient of the Fullbright-Hays Postdoctoral Scholarship he joined the Michigan Cancer Foundation (MCF) in Detroit, Michigan, where he worked with Drs Fred and Bonnie Miller, and Gloria Heppner on tumor cell heterogeneity, tumor cell interactions in metastasis, alterations in cancer cell glycosylation and the role of ras oncogene in tumor progression.Some of these themes accompanied Dr Rak during his subsequent postdoctoral work with Dr Robert S. Kerbel at the University of Torono.

Dr Rak joined the Henderson Research Centre in 2000 as an Assistant Professor affiliated with the Department of Medicine and the Division of Oncology, McMaster University.His laboratory is currently pursuing studies on the relationship between angiogenesis and various activities of the hemostatic system both, in cancer and in other 'angiogenesis -dependent' diseases.
Dr Rak is an author or co-author of over 70 publications, recipient of peer-reviewed grants from the National Cancer Institute of Canada (NCIC) and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and a reviewer for several research journals (Lancet, Journal of Cell Science, Cancer Research, International Journal of Cancer and others).
