Angiogenesis: In Vitro Systems
- David Cheresh, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA
Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels and is an important natural process in the body. A healthy body maintains a perfect balance of angiogenesis modulators. In many serious disease states, however, the body loses control over antiogenesis. Diseases that are angiogensis-dependent result when blood vessels either grow excessively or insufficiently.
