Platelet-derived growth factor-B (PDGFB) is necessary for normal cardiovascular development. The administration of PDGFB alone normalized tumor vasculature by increasing periendothelial coverage and vascular functionality. Interestingly, this effect exerted by PDGFB was also observed in the presence of DAPT. So PDGFB is able to improve tumor vascularity and allows the anticancer action of DAPT in the tumor.
