Angiogenesis is the formation of new capillaries on existing blood vessels, which is a dynamic process. Under normal circumstances, angiogenesis is very rare in adults, but in patients with malignant tumors, angiogenesis provides a steady stream of nutrients for the growth of tumor cells. Therefore, anti-angiogenesis is of great significance for cancer therapy. However, abnormal glucose metabolism in cancer cells promotes tumor progression by secreting some pro-angiogenic factors, mediating endothelial cell proliferation, migration, and altering vascular permeability. Endothelial cells coat the lining of blood vessels and are necessary for the exchange of nutrients and oxygen between blood flow and tumor tissue. Therefore, CD BioGlyco can provide analytics services on the relationship between the glucose metabolism status of tumor endothelial cells and the relationship between glucose metabolism reprogramming and angiogenesis, which can help the development of anti-angiogenic therapeutic methods.

Angiogenesis is a complex process that contains multiple steps and is affected by multiple factors, including pro-angiogenic factors, angiogenesis-inhibiting factors, endothelial cell metabolism, etc. Studying endothelial cell vascular metabolism can provide evidence for the development of anti-angiogenic drugs.
