The studies, conducted in mouse tumor models that produce hyaluronan (HA), demonstrated that PEGPH20 removed HA from the tumor microenvironment and reduced tumor interstitial fluid pressure in a dose dependent fashion, with resultant tumor growth inhibition and prolonged time to progression compared to controls.
We suggest a physiological explanation for residual-limb fluid loss over time: while a person wears a prosthesis, unless the socket is very loose, interface pressures induce interstitial fluid pressures that put residual-limb fluid transport out of balance.
By targeting tumors that overproduce the HA matrix component, PEGPH20 may selectively attack tumor interstitial fluid pressure and combined with chemotherapy, reduce tumor burden for a significant number of patients.
Adding socks may increase interstitial fluid pressure, decreasing the person's limb volume even further.
ONCONASE treatment was associated with significant decrease in lactic acid in tumors as well as increased tumor blood flow, suggesting the acute effect of ONCONASE may, in part, be due to its ability to reduce tumor interstitial fluid pressure (TIFP).
The reduction in interstitial fluid pressure increases the arterial to interstitial pressure gradient while decreasing the venous to interstitial pressure gradient.
