Nerve growth factor: from the early discoveries to the potential clinical use
The physiological role of the neurotrophin nerve growth factor (NGF) has been characterized, since its discovery in the 1950s, first in the sensory and autonomic nervous system, then in central… Expand

Nerve Growth Factor Promotes Angiogenesis and Arteriogenesis in Ischemic Hindlimbs
Background—The neurotrophin nerve growth factor (NGF) regulates neuron survival and differentiation. Implication in neovascularization is supported by statement of NGF and its high-affinity receptor… Expand
Nerve growth factor promotes reparative angiogenesis and inhibits endothelial apoptosis in cutaneous wounds of Type 1 diabetic mice
Aims/hypothesisThe neurotrophin nerve growth factor (NGF) is pro-angiogenic and facilitates wound repair. The present study was conducted to (i) assess the statement of NGF system components in… Expand
INHIBITION OF ENDOTOXIN-INDUCED MACROPHAGE CHEMOKINE PRODUCTION BY VASOACTIVE INTESTINAL PEPTIDE AND PITUITARY ADENYLATE CYCLASE-ACTIVATING POLYPEPTIDE IN VITRO AND IN VIVO
On 21-15 May, 2001 in Antalya, Turkey, the First International Meeting of Asia Minor Branch of the International Neuropeptide Society (INPS) was held in an atmosphere combining both science and… Expand
Role of IL-1 beta and TNF-alpha in the regulation of NGF in experimentally induced arthritis in mice.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of IL-1 beta and TNF-alpha on NGF levels in the knee joint in experimentally induced arthritis in adult mice. Out data showed that IL-1 beta, but… Expand
Neurotrophin presence in human coronary atherosclerosis and metabolic syndrome: a role for NGF and BDNF in cardiovascular disease?
The development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a common comorbidity in patients with the metabolic syndrome, a concurrence of cardiovascular risk factors in one individual. While… Expand
