Manipulation of angiogenesis and clinical applications

Angiogenesis is the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels. However, it is also a fundamental step in the transition of tumors from a benign state to a malignant one, leading to the use of angiogenesis inhibitorsin the treatment of cancer. Mechanical stimulation of angiogenesis is not well characterized. There is a significant amount of controversy with regard to shear stress acting on capillaries to cause angiogenesis. This may be due to an increase in the production of nitric oxide during exercise. Nitric oxide results in vasodilation of blood vessels. While, Chemical stimulation of angiogenesis is performed by various angiogenic proteins, including several growth factors. The purposes of this topic are to review the pathophysiologic angiogenesis process and examine the clinical applications of antiangiogenic therapy in the prevention and treatment of diseases.
