Sammanfattning : The mechanisms behind many important aspects of blood- and lymphatic vessel formation have yet not been elucidated in detail. The primary objectives of this thesis have therefore been to study the effects of hypoxia, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) on vascular development and function.

Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its possible role as a neurotrophic factor. I have investigated the effect of VEGF on neurons in culture but also in vivo, following a crush lesion of the sciatic nerve, and following nerve repair. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family is a group of proteins which contributes to both neovascularisation and inflammation. Elevated levels of VEGF have been found in subjects with atherosclerosis and correlate to several cardiovascular risk factors, e.g. hypertension and hyperlipidemia. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis is defined as the formation of new capillary blood vessels from pre-existing ones. This process involves several steps including: migration, proliferation and differentiation of endothelial cells into blood vessels. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background. Angiogenesis is essential for tumour growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its isoforms were investigated in relation to the clinical course in a large number of patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Methods. LÄS MER
