Description

Understanding how angiogenesis "works" and how to control it will have massive implications on the management, treatments, and ultimately the prevention of many common (and not so common) diseases. 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 angiogenesis. Diseases that are angiogenesis-dependent result when blood vessels either grow excessively or insufficiently.

Key Features

* Tried-and-tested techniques written by researchers that developed them, used them, and brought them to fruition

* Provides the "builder's manual" for essential techniques--a one-stop shop that eliminates needless searching among untested techniques

* Includes step-by-step methods for understanding the cell and molecular basis of wound healing, vascular integrin signaling, mechanical signaling in blood vessels, and vascular proteomics

Readership

Researchers in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, physiology, oncology, cardiology and ophthalmology
