This book focusses on a family of growth factors and their receptors, known as vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF's). VEGF's are critical for endothelial cell function, both during physiological and pathological conditions. Thus, tumors depend on VEGF in order to promote ingrowth of blood vessels. Without VEGF, blood vessels will not form. There is growing awareness that deregulated production or action of VEGF is initiating or driving a large number of diseases. The book is written by the leading scientists in the field for an audience with medical or life science background, and presents an overview of the current knowledge in the area of VEGF and VEDG receptor structure and function in a series of reviews spanning from molecular signal transduction and cellular biology to the clinic.
