Table 1 Reductions in vessel density after short-term sunitinib treatment

From: Sunitinib treatment does not improve blood supply but induces hypoxia in human melanoma xenografts

  All vessels Small vessels Large vessels

  1. Data refer to fold reduction in vessel density in sunitinib-treated tumors compared with untreated tumors after 4 days of treatment (i.e., vessel density in untreated tumors / vessel density in sunitinib-treated tumors). Vessel densities refer to the vessel density of all tumor vessels, only small tumor vessels (vessels with diameter < 15 μm), or only large tumor vessels (vessels with diameter > 15 μm).
