What is an example of defect in angiogenesis?

What is an example of defect in angiogenesis?

Cancer: Abnormal blood vessels both structurally and functional. Cancer is a classic example of both. Just look closely at the circulation inside a big cancer and you will see the defective angiogenesis. ...Read more

Angiogenesis (Definition)

Angiogenesis is the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels. This is distinct from vasculogenesis, which is the de novo formation of endothelial cells from mesoderm cell precursors. The first vessels in the embryo form through vasculogenesis, after which angiogenesis is responsible for most, if not all, blood ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: angiogenesis?

What is the definition or description of: angiogenesis?

See below: Angiogenesis is the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels. This is distinct from vasculogenesis, which is the de novo formation of endothelial cells from mesoderm cell precursors. The first vessels in the embryo form through vasculogenesis, after which angiogenesis is responsible for most, if not all, blood vessel growth during development. ...Read more

What nutrients stimulate angiogenesis?

What nutrients stimulate angiogenesis?

InternalBodyControls: If food made us what we are, they we would likely look like what we eat; reality far more complex. The bodies we inhabit: chemical wizards taking apart molecules & reassembling them like fantastic complex tinker toys under internal controls, called biochemistry. Current knowledge: ischemia, ?pressure diff. & flow may trigger complex responses ?angiogenesis & ?inhibitory controls: balance critical. ...Read more

Angiogenesis goes along with carcinogenesis, right?

Angiogenesis goes along with carcinogenesis, right?

No, But Necessary: Angio= blood, genesis=origin, creation, beginning, carcino=cancer. Thus both terms refer to origin/beginning, but about very different issues, formation of blood/blood vessels vs. Cancers. The one indirect connection, as mentioned by the other physician, is that no cells, including cancer cells, can survive without nearly by blood flow, thus rapid growing cancers must stimulate blood vessels. ...Read more

Neovascularization and angiogenesis, any difference?

Neovascularization and angiogenesis, any difference?

About same: Both imply new blood vessel formation. Sometimes it is due to benign causes , then it is called neovascularization. When it is due to cancer, it is often called angiogenesis. ...Read more

Can someone give me a brief definition of anti - angiogenesis drugs?

Can someone give me a brief definition of anti - angiogenesis drugs?

Prevention of...: Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels. An antiangeogenesis drugs will reduce the ability to form new blood vessels. They have been used to "starve tumors" to slow the growth. ...Read more

Can you tell me about angiogenesis contributes to carcinogenesis because?

Can you tell me about angiogenesis contributes to carcinogenesis because?

Little: Angiogenesis does not help tumor growth which is involved with anaerobic metabolism. The blood vessels that enter the tumor help with metastasis. To help attack tumor hyperbaric oxygen chambers can improve all forms of cancer therapy. ...Read more

Just how is angiogenesis related to cancer?

Just how is angiogenesis related to cancer?

It helps tumors grow: Angiogenesis is the process whereby blood vessels develop. This occurs in normal tissue, but also in tumors. Certain drugs, like Avastin (bevacizumab) which is used in combination with chemotherapy for colorectal cancer, target angiogenesis in tumors. ...Read more

When a drug inhibits angiogenesis in cancer, does it also inhibit angiogenesis throughout the body?

When a drug inhibits angiogenesis in cancer, does it also inhibit angiogenesis throughout the body?

Yes: cancer drugs inevitably are toxic, and need to be in order to get rid of cancer cells, however they can not distinguish good from bad cells hence the bad side affects. ...Read more

In what way angiogenesis related to cancer & mitosis?

In what way angiogenesis related to cancer & mitosis?

Not really: When Folkman discovered angiostatin as a way of controlling animal tumors it was tried as a way of controlling cancer in patients. It failed. While blood vessels at the surface of the tumor are necessary for metastasis, most if not all tumors function by anaerobic metabolism and don't need blood. To help destroy tumor treat them in a hyperbaric chamber. ...Read more
