Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor

Vasular Endothelial Growth Factor, or VEGF, is a signaling protein that is involved in the formation of the embryonic circulatory system and the growth of blood vessel from those that already exist.

VEGF has been associated with poor prognosis in breast cancer, making anti-VEGF treatments important in the treatment of breast cancer.
