Ongoing research into new treatment modalities which can kill CSCs are currently being undertaken [63]. In terms of angiogenesis, a growing body of evidence suggests that CSCs require angiogenic factors and blood vessels to maintain their characteristics. CSCs were found to reside in close proximity to tumor vasculature [64, 65]. Disrupting the VEGF-neuropilin axis was found to decrease the number of CSCs, suggesting that CSCs are angiogenic or VEGF dependent [65, 66]. CSCs of C6 rat gliomas secrete both VEGF and SDF-1 used to promote systemic and local angiogenesis thereby contributing to tumor growth [67].
