Angiogenesis News and Research RSS Feed - Angiogenesis News and Research

Angiogenesis is blood vessel formation. Tumor angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. This is caused by the release of chemicals by the tumor.

Study identifies conditions required to further develop liver and pancreas cells

AMSBIO reports on the recent publication in Nature Protocols1 by Dr Meritxell Huch** and co-workers which describes development of culture conditions that allow the long-term expansion of adult primary tissues from the liver and pancreas into self-assembling 3D organoid cultures. [More]
New review highlights challenges of studying resistance to antiangiogenic treatment in preclinical models

New review highlights challenges of studying resistance to antiangiogenic treatment in preclinical models

New blood vessel growth, or angiogenesis, is critical for cancer to grow and spread throughout the body. [More]
Sleep apnea can make lung cancer more dangerous by increasing tumor growth

Sleep apnea can make lung cancer more dangerous by increasing tumor growth

A team of researchers from the University of Chicago and the University of Barcelona has found that intermittent hypoxia, or an irregular lack of air experienced by people with sleep apnea, can increase tumor growth by promoting the release of circulating exosomes. [More]
Experimental drug outperforms standard first-line therapy for advanced kidney cancer patients

Experimental drug outperforms standard first-line therapy for advanced kidney cancer patients

An experimental kidney cancer drug outperformed the standard first-line therapy for patients with metastatic disease who are considered at risk for poorer than average outcomes, according to results of a randomized phase II clinical trial by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. [More]
TSRI study suggests new approach to limit tumor growth by targeting immune system cells

TSRI study suggests new approach to limit tumor growth by targeting immune system cells

A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute suggests there may be a way to limit tumor growth by targeting immune system cells called macrophages. [More]
AMSBIO add new range of human endothelial progenitor cells

AMSBIO add new range of human endothelial progenitor cells

AMSBIO has expanded its wide and varied catalogue of primary and progenitor cell types and media with a new range of human endothelial progenitor cells (EPC). [More]
Research shows potential way to counteract glioblastoma growth by blocking PPARα receptor

Research shows potential way to counteract glioblastoma growth by blocking PPARα receptor

One of the most remarkable features of glioblastoma is the metabolic reprogramming of cancerous cells, resulting in uncontrolled cell proliferation, hypoxic conditions and angiogenesis. [More]
Researchers find new path to stop metastatic growth of cancer

Researchers find new path to stop metastatic growth of cancer

Investigators from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, and the Institute of Cancer Research, London, have discovered that some cancer cells can draw blood from existing mature blood vessels allowing them to continue to spread. [More]
UC3M scientists use mathematical description to explain how tumors induce growth of blood vessels

UC3M scientists use mathematical description to explain how tumors induce growth of blood vessels

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid has carried out a study that mathematically explains how tumors induce the growth of blood vessels. The study maintains that the tips of the blood vessels expand like a soliton, a solitary wave similar to a tsunami. [More]
Research reveals role of endoglin in shaping blood and cardiac cell fate during early development

Research reveals role of endoglin in shaping blood and cardiac cell fate during early development

New research from the University of Minnesota reveals endoglin as a critical factor in determining the fate of early undifferentiated cells during development. [More]
Gender matching key for corneal transplants? An interview with Professor Kaye

Gender matching key for corneal transplants? An interview with Professor Kaye

The cornea is a transparent tissue lining the front of the eye, that is invisible tissue to the naked eye. It is a delicate tissue and disease or injury may lead to a loss of transparency or a change in the shape of the cornea, resulting in severe visual impairment. [More]
Could a light-listening photonics device detect skin disease? An interview with Prof. Vasilis Ntziachristos

Could a light-listening photonics device detect skin disease? An interview with Prof. Vasilis Ntziachristos

Detection of malignant skin alterations is currently aided by optical microscopes such as dermoscopes or optical microscopes. While the latter offers high resolution, it comes with a major disadvantage, just like any other purely microscopic method: it only provides a partial view of the skin due to the low penetration depth.

Research findings point to potential drug targets to improve angiogenesis in diabetes patients

Research findings point to potential drug targets to improve angiogenesis in diabetes patients

Diabetes heightens the risk of vascular damage to heart and limbs, and impairs the ability to repair damage with new growth of blood vessels, called angiogenesis. [More]
Scientists discover underlying mechanisms of proptosis in patients with thyroid eye disease

Scientists discover underlying mechanisms of proptosis in patients with thyroid eye disease

Researchers from the Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear have identified new underlying mechanisms of proptosis, or bulging of the eyes, in patients with acute thyroid eye disease. [More]

MILabs to provide new hybrid imaging system to Yale for advancing cardiovascular research

MILabs will provide an advanced U-SPECT4CT system to the Yale Translational Research Imaging Center (Y-TRIC) in New Haven-Connecticut, with support of an NIH Shared Instrument Grant for advancing their program in multimodality molecular and translational cardiovascular imaging research. [More]
Analysis of biopsies during early treatment predicts patient’s response to melanoma immunotherapy

Analysis of biopsies during early treatment predicts patient’s response to melanoma immunotherapy

Immune response measured in tumor biopsies during the course of early treatment predicts which melanoma patients will benefit from specific immune checkpoint blockade drugs, researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report in the journal Cancer Discovery. [More]
Expanding the potential of existing cancer therapies: an interview with Dr Mark Rutstein

Expanding the potential of existing cancer therapies: an interview with Dr Mark Rutstein

Cancer remains a leading cause of death worldwide, and the global cancer burden is expected to increase by 70 percent over the next two decades. [More]
Losing weight can lower levels of some proteins linked to tumor growth

Losing weight can lower levels of some proteins linked to tumor growth

Overweight and obese women who lost weight through diet and exercise lowered the levels of certain proteins in their blood that play a role in angiogenesis, the process of blood vessel growth that can promote the growth and survival of cancer cells [More]
Study shows how increase in BMI contributes to multiple myeloma growth and progression

Study shows how increase in BMI contributes to multiple myeloma growth and progression

In a new study published in Cancer Letters, American University researchers show how, as body mass index increases, so does the growth and spread of the blood cancer multiple myeloma, which accounts for about 10 percent of all blood cancers in patients. [More]
