angiogenesis

 [an″je-o-jen´ĕ-sis]
1. development of blood vessels in the embryo.
2. any formation of new blood vessels; see also neovascularization (def. 2) and revascularization. Called also angiopoiesis and vasculogenesis. adj., adj angiogenic.
tumor angiogenesis the induction of the growth of blood vessels from surrounding tissue into a tumor by a diffusible protein factor released by the tumor cells.

vas·cu·lo·gen·e·sis

(vas'kyū-lō-jen'ĕ-sis),
1. Formation of the vascular system.
2. Formation of new vessels by endothelial cell progenitors.
[vasculo- + G. genesis, production]

vasculogenesis

The development of new blood vessels from endothelial stem cells—i.e., in absence of pre-existing vessels.
