Regeneration of animals’ body parts has been observed for centuries. In vertebrates, research in regeneration has now produced a new level of understanding yet there are still many questions unanswered. One of the processes that commonly occur in regeneration is angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing blood vessels. Even though this process has been known to occur during regeneration but more research are needed to understand the whole process underlying angiogenesis during regeneration. One of the question which arise is what cause angiogenesis to occur only at a certain stage of regeneration and what process or signal activate the initiation of angiogenesis. This paper aims to review the importance of angiogenesis during regeneration and why the study of the regeneration process can be used as a model to study angiogenesis in vertebrates. Hopefully, more understanding on how this process works might help human to develop a method to cure or create new medicine to heal severe injuries both for human and othr vrtbrats as well.
