Angiogenesis is critical to wound repair. Newly formed blood vessels participate in provisional granulation tissue formation and provide nutrition and oxygen to growing tissues. In addition, inflammatory cells require the interaction with and transmigration through the endothelial basement membrane to enter the site of injury. Angiogenesis, in response to tissue injury, is a dynamic process that is highly regulated by signals from both serum and the surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM… CONTINUE READING
