Cancer is a disease that involves abnormal cell growth which spreads across the body.
The proliferation of the cells may result in tumors which can be cancerous or benign. There are more than 100 types of cancer classified by the type of cells involved. Angiogenesis is a physiological process which creates blood vessels in the body.
This process activates when we suffer an injury and the body needs rebuilt blood vessels in order to start the healing, but angiogenesis is related to cancer as well.
The process is regulated by inhibitors and activators – although cancer is closely related to inhibitors, the activators are responsible for stimulating the vascular cell growth which is important for angiogenesis.post was originally published on this site
