Activated Microvessels Express Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor and Integrin αvβ3 During Focal Cerebral Ischemia
Both vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and integrin αvβ3 play roles in angiogenesis. In noncerebral vascular systems, VEGF can induce endothelial integrin αvβ3 expression. However, it isExpand

Angiotensin type 1 receptor blockage improves ischemic injury following transient focal cerebral ischemia
Following cerebral ischemia, i.v. infusion of angiotensin II increases cerebral edema and mortality. Angiotensin type 1 receptor blockage should therefore improve acute cerebral ischemia. Left middleExpand
