Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Angiogenesis is a frequent hallmark of inflammation; in acute inflammation angiogenesis occurs to revascularize damaged tissues, with subsequent vascular pruning and maturation, which results in restoration of an adequate blood supply to the tissue involved. Angiogenesis is also a characteristic of chronic inflammation, and may be one of the links between inflammation and cancer (Colotta et al. 2009; Kobayashi and Lin 2009).
