Cancer: from terminal to chronic illness

"In the future, cancer will no longer be a terminal illness. It has to work to discover that cancer is 'only' a chronic disease. "The ultimate blood vessel growth inhibitor That is the belief of Professor Aryan Griffon, professor of angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis is the process of formation of new blood vessels. Since tumors may grow if they receive oxygen and nutrients from blood vessels, only a blood vessel growth inhibitor can stop the tumor growth in theory. Angiogenesis inhibitors are therefore occupied an important position in the treatment of patients with cancer.for more information about health

The past five years for now, however, these anti-cancer agents with limited success One of the obstacles is the emergence of resistance. Yet Professor Griffin convinced that blood vessel growth inhibitors have a future in the fight against cancer. He calls for to use in the investigation of angiogenesis inhibitors than was customary until now a different strategy. The research should not focus on the inhibition of growth factor signals from the variable malignant tumor cells, but the stable properties of the endothelial cells that form the lining of blood vessels.   here is another about link

The drugs have a direct effect on blood vessel cells of the tumor, regardless of the erratic behavior of malignant tumor cells. In this way, a therapy can be effective without the tumor cells are more aggressive, which may result. Resistance in the Angiogenesis Laboratory of VU University Medical Center researchers have been working for several years with this strategy.
