There are a number of potential reasons for this. Firstly, determination of treatment effect, rather than prediction of prognosis, requires serial measurement. Generally, only small samples of tumor can be obtained in a serial manner. Since MVD by definition measures the peak vessel density, use of small samples may affect accuracy and it is technically difficult to sample similar areas of 21 tumor repeatedly. Secondly, while MVD reflects some aspects of the angiogenic process, it may not be a measure of the relative dependence of a particular tumor on angiogenesis, and changes in MVD do not necessarily correlate with changes in tumor growth rate.

Polymorphisms of components of the VEGF pathway also have been proposed to predict benefit from bevacizumab treatment (Schneider et al. 2008b; Schultheis et al. 2008). However, these findings have not been validated and 26 the prognostic importance of these polymorphisms in patients treated undergoing bevacizumab therapy has not been established. Bevacizumab has also been evaluated in the management of SCLC. For example, one ECOG study added bevacizumab to cisplatin and etoposide for up to four cycles and continued bevacizumab as maintenance for up to 1 year in patients with extensivestage SCLC (Horn et al.
