Angiogenesis is the process of the formation of new blood vessels from those that already exist. There are multiple factors that work as angiogenic stimulants, including FGF, TGF-beta, and VEGF, which results in the MAPK pathway to initiate the growth process. Intussusceptive angiogenesis occurs when the capillary wall moves into the lumen through transvascular pillars and causes the blood vessel to split into two. This form of angiogenesis is important in early development, as it can cause a large increase in the number of capillaries without recruiting a huge number of new endothelial cells. Intussusceptive angiogenesis is basically a reorganization of the preexisting cells into new capillaries with the retention of the original basic structure. Angiogenesis is an important function in the oxygenation of tissues, and can help in various functions including wound healing and the treatment of vascular diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. An abnormal rate of angiogenesis, however, can cause many problems including the proliferation of cancerous tumors, diabetic ulcers, and cardiovascular diseases. Many scientists have studied factors of angiogenesis, and treatments have been created that involve either the inhibition or activation of blood vessel growth.
