Line 1: Line 1:
 +The process of developing new blood vessels. Angiogenesis is important in the normal development of the embryo and fetus. It also appears important to [[tumor]] formation. Certain [[protein]]s,​ including angiostatin and endostatin, secreted by tumors work (at least in mice) by interfering with the [[blood]] supply tumors need. Angiostatin is a piece of a larger and very common protein, plasminogen,​ that the body uses in blood clotting. Endostatin is a piece of a different protein, collagen 18, that is in all [[blood vessels]].

 +Tumor angiogenesis is the growth of blood vessels from surrounding tissue to a solid tumor. This is caused by the release of chemicals by the tumor.
