not yet rated|write a review
Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels and is an important natural process in the body. A healthy body maintains a perfect balance of angiogenesis modulators. In many serious disease states, however, the body loses control over antiogenesis. Diseases that are angiogensis-dependent result when blood vessels either grow excessively or insufficiently.

* Tried-and-tested techniques written by researchers that developed them, used them, and brought them to fruition

* Provides the "builder's manual" for essential techniques--a one-stop shop that eliminates needless searching among untested techniques

* Includes step-by-step methods for understanding the cell and molecular basis of wound healing, vascular integrin signaling, mechanical signaling in blood vessels, and vascular proteomics
