Feedback:
Bevacizumab (Avastin) binds to growth factor receptors found on blood vessels to prevent intracellular growth factors from becoming activated and stimulating cell growth. Bevacizumab does not change the RNA of the tumor cell. Bevacizumab does not bind to the 30S ribosome or block cell wall synthesis.
