Therapeutic angiogenesis provides a potential alternative for the treatment of cardiovascular ischemic diseases. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important component of the angiogenic response to ischemia. Here we used adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene delivery to skeletal muscle to examine the effects of VEGF vs. a stabilized form of(More)
Angiogenic therapy, which involves the use of an exogenous stimulus to promote blood vessel growth, is an attractive approach for the treatment of ischemic diseases. It has been shown in animal models that the stimulation of blood vessel growth leads to the growth of the whole vascular tree, improvement of ischemic tissue perfusion and improved muscle(More)
