Under conditions of chronic pulmonary ischemia, the bronchial circulation undergoes massive proliferation. However, little is known regarding the mechanisms that promote neovascularization. An expanding body of literature implicates the glutamic acid-leucine-arginine (ELR+) CXC chemokines and their G protein-coupled receptor, CXCR(2), as key proangiogenic(More)
Between 1 August 1975 and 31 October 1982, 76 patients aged between 70 and 82 years (mean 73,4 years) underwent elective (71) or emergency (5) valve replacements. Fifty patients underwent aortic valve replacement (including 5 with additional coronary artery bypass grafts), 19 mitral valve replacement including 3 with coronary artery bypass grafts, and 7(More)
Bronchial vascular angiogenesis takes place in a variety of lung inflammatory conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, and chronic pulmonary thromboembolic disease. However, it is unclear whether neovascularization is predominantly appropriate and preserves lung tissue or whether it contributes further to lung pathology through edema(More)
