Degree of vascularit: Most tumor grow by anerobic metabolism, Warburg Citric Acid Cycle. They do not need oxygen to survive and can best be controlled by use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation. Blood supply serves to allow the tumor cells to metastasize. Drugs that inhibit blood supply like Avastin (bevacizumab) actually work by opening microcirculation to let drugs into tumor.more effectively. ...Read more
Source of invasion: All tumors tend to spread, mostly by metastasizing through surrounding blood supply. The tumors do not need the oxygen supplied by the vessels to survive since they grow by anaerobic metabolism. When Folkman developed angiostatin to diminish blood supply to tumors there was no change in growth and lesions progressed. This confirmed the role of vascularization to the tumor as sources for invasion ...Read more
