Angiogenesis Inhibitors

As the body develops and grows, it makes new blood vessels to supply all of the cells with blood. This process is called angiogenesis. When the new blood vessels provide oxygen and nutrients to the cancer cells, they help the cancer cells grow and spread.

The goal of angiogenesis inhibitors is to help stop or slow the growth or spread of these tumors. They are also called anti-angiogenic agents or drugs.
