Tumors conscript immune cells to support neoplastic progression. One important mechanism by which immune cells contribute to tumor growth is the promotion of angiogenesis. In this chapter, we discuss the role of immune cells and inflammatory mediators in this process. Targeting immune cells and their proangiogenic programs in tumors may represent a new frontier of antiangiogenic therapy.
