Generx is designed to stimulate the body's natural healing response to ischemic coronary artery disease by promoting microvascular angiogenesis and arteriogenesis, and enhancing cardiac perfusion.
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.

MSCs have the ability to recruit and participate in angiogenesis and de novo arteriogenesis, and VEGF plays a central role in the observed host-derived angiogenic response.
The researchers found that three types of blood vessel development occurred after exposure to the diesel exhaust: angiogenesis, the generation of new capillaries; arteriogenesis, the maturation of restarted growth of existing vessels; and vasculogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels.

SYGNIS pursues a dual neurotherapeutic approach in the development of AX200 for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases: AX200 stops neuronal cell death in the acute phase of the disease while at the same time stimulating the regeneration of the already damaged CNS through the stimulation of neurogenesis as well as arteriogenesis and the reorganisation of neuronal networks.
