What are angiogenic growth factors?

Posted October 10, 2023


Angiogenic growth factors are a class of molecules which have a significant role in the process of blood vessel formation. These growth factors have both vasculogenic and angiogenic properties. Additionally, they are involved in a series of mechanisms during organogenesis. The most common angiogenic growth factors include VEGF, and bFGF.
