Tumor-associated angiogenesis plays a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of tumors. Many angiogenesis factors (including activators and inhibitors) participate in modulating tumor-associated angiogenesis. Through studying the mechanisms of angiogenesis regulation by angiogenesis factors, we may find ways to control the angiogenesis process in tumors as novel approaches to cancer treatment. In this review, we report the recent progress in mechanistic studies of angiogenesis and therapeutic approaches to cancer treatment through antiangiogenesis.
