Glucocorticoids can inhibit solid tumor growth via downregulation of tumorassociated
inflammation/angiogenesis. In this minireview we describe the possible
mechanisms of glucocorticoid action in tumor growth inhibition. We also present an
overview of the current status of tumor-targeted glucocorticoid delivery. It appears
that long-circulating liposomes are the only targeting system currently being explored
for this purpose.
