Resistance to current cytotoxic therapies limits the treatment of most solid malignancies. This results, in part, from the overactivation of receptor tyrosine kinases and their downstream pathways in tumor cells and their associated vasculature. In this report, we ask if targeting the multifunctional mitogenic, cytoprotective, and angiogenic scatter factor/hepatocyte growth factor (SF/HGF)/c-Met pathway potentiates antitumor responses to gamma-radiation.
