The emphasis of this book is on mechanisms and pathways regulating the expression and actions of classical and novel tumor angiogenesis regulators. The contributors discuss their underlying biology as well as anti-angiogenic drugs currently in use to fight different cancers. The book provides an insight on how factors such as obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders can influence the development and growth of cancer. It is of significant interest not only to oncologists but also to a wide range of medical practitioners and researchers.
