In a few words – they stop the blood supply to the tumor cells, or have anti-angiogenesis properties. Angiogenesis is a normal process of creation of blood vessels in the body. In some periods of your life it is enhanced – for example in newborns, while in adults this function is “unlocked” rarely – such as in wounds when tissues and capillaries need to be restored. Angiogenesis is regulated by activators and inhibitor molecules. Typically, the inhibitors predominate, but it becomes necessary activators of angiogenesis and stimulate increased vascular cell growth for the formation of new blood vessels.
