The aim of this study was to analyse microvascular damage and compensatory angiogenesis in skin from patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) compared with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) and healthy controls. Immunohistochemistry was used for skin biopsies (9 SSc, 10 SLE, 9 RP and 12 healthy controls) using von Willebrand factor(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its vascular and lymphatic receptors in skin in systemic sclerosis (SSc) compared to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) and normal healthy control skin. METHODS Staining was performed using rabbit anti-human antibodies in DAKO TechMate(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the expression of factors potentially involved in skeletal muscle degeneration and regeneration in dermatomyositis (DM), systemic sclerosis (SSc), polymyositis (PM), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and non-inflammatory myopathies. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining of skeletal muscle biopsies (10 DM, 10 SSc, 10 PM, 10 SLE, 10(More)
To analyze the microvascular network in skeletal muscle biopsies from patients with dermatomyositis (DM) and systemic sclerosis (SSc) compared to polymyositis (PM) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and non-inflammatory myopathies, and to clarify whether reparative angiogenesis-related factors are expressed in parallel to blood vessel damage.(More)
