Several anti-angiogenic agents are now in clinical trials for a range of diseases characterized by uncontrolled blood vessel formation, including cancer and diabetic retinopathy. The potential value of anti-angiogenic agents has given researchers in this field new enthusiasm and impetus. This volume provides a set of up-to-date reviews on the important components of this process coupled with a set of critical chapters describing the various techniques for studying angiogenesis. In addition, several state-of-the-art chapters describe associated techniques such as the isolation of microvascular endothelial cells, and the basic principles behind the use of transgenic mice in the study of angiogenesis. The book offers not only recipes for the study of angiogenesis, but also an up-to-date account of the biology of angiogenesis.
