Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, occurs normally during osteogenesis, luteinisation and the development of the embryo, and in pathological states such as chronic inflammation, certain immune reactions and neoplasia1. Furthermore, solid tumours have been reported to secrete a diffusible factor which promotes the directional growth of new capillaries towards a growing tumour2. Two events required for the formation of a new capillary in response to an angiogenesis factor in vivo are… CONTINUE READING
