These genotypic characteristics were compared with classical histopathological parameters used in bladder cancer in order to evaluate the potential role of angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors in determining recurrence and progression in urothelial bladder cancer.
The endothelial cells have a primary role in angiogenic signaling between VEGF and VEGFR2.
Statins, meanwhile, have been shown to prevent or reverse angiogenic imbalance by promoting the release of vascular endothelial growth factor and placental growth factor and by suppressing the production of soluble FMS-like tyrosine kinase 1 and soluble endoglin.
The maternal decidua, in which the decidual defect is a major contributing factor to PP formation, have a role in the expression of angiogenic growth factors (VEGF and PlGF).
For circulating angiogenic growth factors levels, compared to nondiabetes participants, diabetes patients had higher levels of plasma Ang-2 and VEGF and lower levels of Ang-1 (Table 1).

CAM assays have been widely used to study angiogenesis ([11]), and the advantages of the CAM model are as follows: (i) the highly vascularized nature of the CAM greatly promotes the assessment of angiogenic property; (ii) high reproducibility; (iii) simplicity and cost effectiveness; and finally (iv) as the CAM assay is a closed system, the half-life of many new molecules tends to be much longer in comparison to animal models, allowing experimental study of potential angiogenic compounds in small quantities ([12, 13]).

Therefore, both in vitro and ex vivo studies can be valuable to study the angiogenic process in the retina.
To overcome the problem of vessel formation, several strategies have been suggested including delivery of angiogenic molecules.
In atherosclerotic lesions, the relative local hypoxia, which results from insufficient oxygen and nutrient diffusion and from the enhanced demand due to increased metabolism of inflammatory cells, activates the HIF/VEGF pathway and the subsequent angiogenic response [3-7].
Angiogenesis begins with the production of angiogenic factors which are responsible for the activation of endothelial cells, which, in turn, secrete proteolytic enzymes such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and plasminogen activators.
