There has been a growing interest in angiogenesis as a target for degenerative disease prevention or therapy.
These high levels of VEGF prompt the onset of robust angiogenesis that sprouts from host vessels and allows for tumor survival and further growth.
The answer, according to Folkman and others involved in angiogenesis research, is that while those substances may suppress the growth of tumors in some, or even many, individuals, their natural levels are not sufficient to prevent tumor growth in patients who develop malignant cancers.

Chapters cover topics such as working models of tumor angiogenesis, the role of angiogenesis inhibition in the therapy of malignant disease, and the environmental influences and genetic and physiologic abnormalities that mediate angiogenesis and its role in the progression of malignant disease.
