Abstract

There has been great interest in developing anti-angiogenic therapies for the treatment of patients with high-grade gliomas. In fact, some anti-angiogenic agents are now routinely used for the treatment of patients with glioblastoma. However, the use of these agents is largely based on trials which indicate an initial radiographic response, while it remains unclear whether any anti-angiogenic therapies tested to date have improved the overall survival of patients with malignant glial tumours. This manuscript reviews the landscape of anti-angiogenic therapy in glioma, with a focus on GBM, and demonstrates that further innovation is needed to determine the true utility of anti-angiogenic therapy.
