And as well, cancer tumors require a process called angiogenesis, which is really, the tumor recruits the blood vessels to itself, to supply itself with nutrients so it can grow.
In the case of cancer, angiogenesis is critical to the development of tumours.
The underlying principle behind anti-angiogenesis is that the development of these blood vessels may be slowed or halted entirely.
Anti-angiogenesis is a new biological approach to cancer treatment.
In these cases, angiogenesis is a normal physiological process.
The compound can stall the spread of fat-tissue by inhibiting new blood vessel growth, called angiogenesis, which is necessary to build fat tissue, according to results from a new animal model study by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) - funded scientists and colleagues.
And the most fascinating thing that I learned that I really want everybody to understand is that there are some anti-cancer properties to cannabis, that it can trigger the cell death of cancer cells while leaving normal cells intact, and it can decrease what's called angiogenesis, which is you know, when a tumor is growing, it sends out these chemicals telling the blood vessels, you know, we need more blood here.
BIBF 1120 (planned brand name Vargatef (TM)) is a novel oral compound that works by simultaneously inhibiting three receptors involved in the formation of blood vessels, a process also called angiogenesis, which is needed for tumours to grow and spread.

Studies have shown that blood vessels naturally regenerate through a process called angiogenesis but the new vessels are usually weak and disappear quickly.
