Article first published online: 27 SEP 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.26518
Osteosarcoma cells express cofactors and receptors of the coagulation cascade that directly and indirectly promote a malignant phenotype by increasing cell proliferation and forming a thrombus. Osteosarcoma growth can be attenuated by targeting this procoagulant activity with low molecular weight heparin.
