AIDS-associated Kaposi's sarcoma

Hosp Pract (1995). 1998 Apr 15;33(4):85-8, 95-6, 99-102. doi: 10.1080/21548331.1998.11443673.


In less than two decades, the disease mechanisms have been elucidated and hypotheses for innovative treatment have been developed. Our understanding of the sarcoma's pathogenesis has led directly to general knowledge of the physiology and pathology of angiogenesis. Hence, it can be expected that new treatments for all cancer patients may someday emerge from clinical intervention trials for the AIDS-related disease.
