Although, Avastin and Kadcyla are
both targeting processes and they block specific protein receptors, the two
differ in the mechanism of action inside the cells. Avastin lessens the development
of new blood vessels as well as tumour growth. It works by only blocking soluble
VEGF-A. When VEGF-A signalling is congested in an extremely vascularised
tumour, it results in inhibition of blood flow, ‘endothelial cell apoptosis,
pericyte migration and empty basement membrane sleeves’ (Google Books 2018). Nevertheless, if avastin treatment is ceased,
the VEGF proteins are accessible to stimulate the residual endothelial cells,
which ‘uses the empty basement membrane sleeves as a scaffold for rapid
revascularization of the tumours as new blood vessels begin to form again’ (Google Books 2018). Overexpression of
VEGF causes edema which is ‘an accumulation of fluid around the tumour due to
increased endothelial cell permeability; thereby compromising the blood-brain
barrier’ (Google Books 2018). With
avastin, when VEGF reduce in number, the permeability of endothelial cells also
decreases. As a result, the veracity of the blood brain barrier is reinstated.

When the vascular system is reinstated it allows better functioning.

Consequently, with functional blood vessels, chemotherapy agents can be
allotted successfully which in turn destroys tumour cells thereby decreasing
the growth rate of the tumour. (Google
