Abstract

Colorectal carcinoma is still one of the most crucial problems in oncology today. Firstly, this neoplasm occurs frequently and in terms of new cases world wide - at around one million per year - it is second on the list, right after pulmonary carcinoma. Secondly, it is a neoplasm which still has a poor prognosis in which the survival rate over a five-year period, in the majority of cases, is below 50%. Moreover, there are around half a million deaths a year worldwide. In this work, the authors discussed the role of neoangiogenesis in the large intestine cancer pathogenesis.
