Zebrafish (Danio rerio) represents a powerful model system in cancer research. Recent observations have shown the possibility to exploit zebrafish to investigate tumor angiogenesis, a pivotal step in cancer progression and target for anti-tumor therapies. Experimental models have been established in zebrafish adults, juveniles, and embryos, each one with its own advantages and disadvantages. Novel genetic tools and high resolution in vivo imaging techniques are also becoming available in… CONTINUE READING
