Abstract

The role of angiogenesis in the growth of lymphomas and survival of patients with leukemias and other hematological malignancies has become evident since 1994. Angiogenic factors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor and its receptors together with other tumor microenvironment components, including myelo-monocytic cell, mast cells, endothelial progenitor cells, and circulating endothelial cells, have been shown to be important in the progression and maintenance of lymphoproliferative disorders. In this review article, we present an overview of the literature focusing on the relationship between angiogenesis and disease progression and the recent advantages in the antiangiogenic treatment in human non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
