Download a comprehensive guide detailing HA accumulation in the TME.
The accumulation of the glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan in the tumor microenvironment (TME) occurs in numerous solid tumors, where it can compromise both the delivery of anticancer therapeutics and access of immune cells to the tumor.1-7
