This lecture will focus on how a novel human protein, called FKBPL, that occurs naturally in the body, has a unique ability to inhibit tumour blood vessel development, thereby stopping tumour growth and metastasis. A therapeutic peptide-based drug derived from the protein that has been designed to harness its therapeutic effects has entered Phase I/II cancer clinical trials.
