How are tumors and blood vessels formed?
What is Angiogenesis?
How do tumors signal for angiogenesis to occur?
Do the blood vessels and tumors play a role in the metastasis of cancer? If so how?
tumor cells release signal molecules to normal surrounding tissue that activates certain genes in the nucleus to make proteins that encourage the growth of blood vessels The vascular endothelial growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor are the two proteins that
are believed to be the most important in the whole process of tumor growth
Blood vessels are the method in which the cancer spreads. The cancer goes into the blood stream to the other blood vessels that are normal.
Blood vessels are how the tumors actually stay nourished because it provides oxygen and nutrients. This is how the cancerous blood vessels are able to remain effective in cancer.
What research has been/is being conducted on the blood vessels of tumors?
Can angiogenesis inhibitors be used as treatment to stop the growth of tumor cells or slow metastasis?
