Micronutrient deficiency is well studied under many diseases. Angiogenesis, formation of new blood vessels is a break through interest of many researchers in diseases like cancer, diabetes. In this pilot study we aimed to comprehensively investigate the relationships of micronutrient deficiency and angiogenesis. We examined the results with the help of markers like VE-cadherin, VEGF, VWF, CD-31. Out of this study we conclude that micronutrient deficiency delays angiogenesis and weakens the existence of blood vessel.
