VEGF-A is a major angiogenesis and permeability factor. Its cellular effects, which can be used as targets in anti-angiogenesis therapy, have mainly been studied in vitro using endothelial cell cultures. The purpose of the present study was to further characterize these effects in vivo in vascular endothelial cells and pericytes, in an experimental monkey(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR-3, Flt-4), the receptor for vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) C and D, is expressed on lymphatic endothelium and may play a role in lymphangiogenesis. In embryonic life, VEGFR-3 is essential for blood vessel development. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether VEGFR-3 is also(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism leading to capillary nonperfusion of the retina in a monkey model of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF)-induced retinopathy in which capillary closure occurs in a late stage after VEGF treatment. METHODS Two monkeys received 4 intravitreous injections of 0.5 microg of VEGF in one eye and of(More)
