What are the applications of Cell Angiogenesis Assays?
The importance of studying angiogenesis, is highlighted by its involvement in both normal physiological processes (such as embryonic growth and wound healing) and various pathological conditions (such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases). Either deficient or excessive vessel formation may lead to the onset of disease. Therefore, treatment aims to promote or reduce angiogenesis. Agents that stimulate angiogenesis can improve blood flow recovery for the treatment of ischemic diseases, whereas anti-angiogenic agents have been used to treat cancer and inflammatory disorders.
