Rapid Science Publishers are delighted to announce the forthcoming launch
of Angiogenesis, an innovative journal with a strong international
Editorial Board. The Journal will be published bimonthly with six issues
per year. It will emphasise the need to encourage active research towards
the development of practical therapies against angiogenic diseases.

Angiogenesis will be devoted to the rapid publication in both print form
and on the World-Wide-Web, of experimental and clinically-orientated
research focusing on the following areas:

* the role of angiogenesis in tumour biology, wound healing and
chronic inflammation and its importance in cardiology,
opthalmology and other diseases. These will include tumour
progression and metastasis, arthritis, psoriasis, atherosclerosis,
myocardial infarction, diabetic retinopathy,
macular degeneration, hemangioma and Kaposi's sarcoma

* mechanisms controlling angiogenesis under physiological (eg.
endometrial angiogenesis) and pathological conditions (eg.
atherosclerosis and cancer)

* endogenous endothelial growth factors, angiogenesis inhibitors,
cellular adhesion molecules and extracellular matrix in
angiogenesis cascade

* the clinical development of potential drugs, antibodies and gene
therapy to control angiogenic pathways

* development of new markers and techniques for the assessment of
angiogenic activity of potential prognostic and predictive value
of tumour prognosis and response to antiangiogenic agents
