(2010) studied the effects of temozolomide, drug employed in anticancer therapy in CNS tumors, microencapsulated in PLGA, together with Vetalanib inhibitor of the VEGF receptor on a orthotopic glioma model in rats, these found that combination of these drugs resulted in a decrease in tumor volume, thus improving the survival time and an increase in the number of apoptotic tumor cells and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis.
