Angiogenesis is the formation process of new blood vessels from preexisting vessels. Solid tumors need angiogenesis for growth and metastasis. The suppression of tumor growth by inhibition of neoangiogenic processes represents a potential approach to cancer treatment. Lycopene has powerful antioxidant capacities and anticarcinogenic properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of lycopene on angiogenesis in vitro. For this reason, we measured in vitro angiogenesis in human… CONTINUE READING
