Angiogenesis And Cancer

Description

Cancer has the ability to spread to adjacent or distant organs, which makes it life threatening. Tumor cells can penetrate blood or lymphatic vessels, circulate through the intravascular stream, and then proliferate at another site: metastasis. For the metastatic spread of cancer tissue, growth of the vascular network is important. The processes whereby new blood and lymphatic vessels form are called angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, respectively. Both have an essential role in the formation of a new vascular network to supply nutrients, oxygen and immune cells, and also to remove waste products.
