Definition of angiostatin in English:
A drug used to inhibit the growth of new blood vessels in malignant tumors.
- Unfortunately all tumors, no matter what their size, secrete angiostatin, which promotes tumor growth - particularly the growth of new blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the tumor.
- So the radiation, in combination with angiostatin, enhanced the drug's ability to block the growth of new tumor-supplying blood vessels.
- Two decades later his lab discovered two compounds, endostatin and angiostatin, that shrank tumors in mice.
