Application Number:13/806,929
Patent Claims:1. A method of treating a cancer tumor in a subject in need thereof, comprising: administering an anti-tumor therapy to the subject; and administering a therapeutically effective amount of a CXCR4 inhibitor to the subject within 5 days of administering the anti-tumor therapy; measuring the level of CXCL12 expression in the subject; comparing the level of CXCL12 expression in the subject to a reference level; and administering the CXCR4 inhibitor to the subject until CXCL12 expression is within 10% of the reference level.
