Brief description of Anti-Angiogenesis cancer treatment

The goal of the Anti-Angiogenesis cancer treatment is to disrupt the formation of new blood vessels in the tumours and thus inhibit their growth.

How does Anti-angiogenesis work against cancer?

Every tumour needs blood vessels to supply the cancer cells with oxygen and nutrients. Without these, further growth is not possible. Therefore, cancer cells release specific proteins into the environment and ensure that new blood vessels are continuously formed, and thus, growth can progress. The formation of new blood vessels is called angiogenesis.

The goal of the anti-angiogenesis program is to prevent new blood vessels from forming and thus stop tumour growth. Any tumour that cannot be supplied with sufficient oxygen and nutrients will stop growing or die.

Fortunately, some natural substances can stop the vascularization of tumours. We use these in a targeted manner.

Against which types of cancer can it be used?

All solid tumors and metastases require blood vessels to continue growing. This program is therefore almost always part of our therapy concepts.
