Angiogenesis is critically mediated by endothelial cell receptor tyrosine kinase. Present study designed to study the anti-angiogenic effect of RO0281501 in R3327 AT rat prostate tumor model by MRS tumor lactate measurement and DCE-MRI. Post 24hr treatment tumor inhibition was 18 % and by day 7 it was 40 % (compared to control group). Treated group Akep (tumor rim) value at 24hrs is significantly (p<0.05) lesser than its baseline Akep value whereas reduction in Akep is not signficant in control group. Lactate detected prior to treatment has significantly (p<0.05) reduced after 24hr of treatment and increased significantly on day 7.
