Immune cells and angiogenesis

  title={Immune cells and angiogenesis},
  author={Domenico Ribatti and Enrico Crivellato},
  booktitle={Journal of cellular and molecular medicine},
Both innate and adaptive immune cells are involved in the mechanisms of endothelial cell proliferation, migration and activation, through the production and release of a large spectrum of pro-angiogenic mediators. These may create the specific microenvironment that favours an increased rate of tissue vascularization. In this review, we will focus on the immune cell component of the angiogenic process in inflammation and tumour growth. As angiogenesis is the result of a net balance between the… CONTINUE READING
