The formation of the coronary arteries begins in the third week and involves a series of carefully regulated events including vasculogenesis, angiogenesis, arteriogenesis and remodelling (Tomanek et al.
On the other hand, arteriogenesis is the growth of muscular arteries requiring similar events regulated by endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells from pre-existing arteries (24).

A large animal model trial in canines showed that 10 weeks of 200 mg twice daily supplementation of EVNol SupraBio softgels resulted in significantly smaller stroke-induced lesion volume, prevented loss of white matter fiber tract, and arteriogenesis was triggered to increase blood flow to ischemic area," he explained.
Therefore, adenosine formed by extracellular nucleotide catabolism on endothelial cells and immune cells appears to be an important endogenous modulator of arteriogenesis, so it is obvious that the role of 5'-nucleotidase-derived adenosine in a model of chronic vascular inflammation such as atherogenesis.
Endothelial cells play a pivotal role in all steps of collateral development and nitric oxide (NO) also plays a critical role in the maintenance of normal endothelial function, angiogenesis and arteriogenesis.
