Molecular mechanisms and clinical applications of angiogenesis

  title={Molecular mechanisms and clinical applications of angiogenesis},
  author={Peter Carmeliet and Rakesh K. Jain},
Blood vessels deliver oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body, but also nourish diseases such as cancer. Over the past decade, our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of angiogenesis (blood vessel growth) has increased at an explosive rate and has led to the approval of anti-angiogenic drugs for cancer and eye diseases. So far, hundreds of thousands of patients have benefited from blockers of the angiogenic protein vascular endothelial growth factor, but limited efficacy and… CONTINUE READING
