      Coevolution of solid stress and interstitial fluid pressure in tumors during progression: Implications for vascular collapse 

      Stylianopoulos, T.; Martin, J. D.; Snuderl, M.; Mpekris, F.; Jain, S. R.; Jain, R. K. (2013)
      The stress harbored by the solid phase of tumors is known as solid stress. Solid stress can be either applied externally by the surrounding normal tissue or induced by the tumor itself due to its growth. Fluid pressure is ...

      Combining two strategies to improve perfusion and drug delivery in solid tumors 

      Stylianopoulos, T.; Jain, R. K. (2013)
      Blood perfusion in tumors can be significantly lower than that in the surrounding normal tissue owing to the leakiness and/or compression of tumor blood vessels. Impaired perfusion reduces oxygen supply and results in a ...

      Delivering nanomedicine to solid tumors 

      Jain, R. K.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2010)
      Recent advances in nanotechnology have offered new hope for cancer detection, prevention, and treatment. While the enhanced permeability and retention effect has served as a key rationale for using nanoparticles to treat ...

      Remodeling components of the tumor microenvironment to enhance cancer therapy 

      Gkretsi, V.; Stylianou, A.; Papageorgis, P.; Polydorou, C.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2015)
      Solid tumor pathophysiology is characterized by an abnormal microenvironment that guides tumor progression and poses barriers to the efficacy of cancer therapies. Most common among tumor types are abnormalities in the ...

      The role of mechanical forces in tumor growth and therapy 

      Jain, R. K.; Martin, J. D.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2014)
      Tumors generate physical forces during growth and progression. These physical forces are able to compress blood and lymphatic vessels, reducing perfusion rates and creating hypoxia. When exerted directly on cancer cells, ...
