Angiogenesis is the fundamental process by which new blood vessels are formed. Extensive research has shown that this event can be co-opted by tumors to ensure their growth, survival and metastasis. The study of tumor angiogenesis therefore represents a promising area of research for development of anti-cancer therapeutics. Integrins, a family of cell surface molecules, are a major target of interest as they are known to play a vital role in pathological angiogenesis. Remarkably, small… Expand
