Moderate levels of ethanol induce expression of vascular endothelial growth factor and stimulate angiogenesis.
Alcohol abuse has a negative impact on human health; however, epidemiological studies show that moderate consumption of ethanol (EtOH) reduces the risk of coronary heart disease, sudden cardiacExpand

Morphometric measurements of chorioallantoic membrane vascularity: effects of hypoxia and hyperoxia.
We studied the effects of hypoxia and hyperoxia on the angiogenesis process in the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) using four different morphometric measurements of vascularity. ChickExpand

Exercise increases endostatin in circulation of healthy volunteers
BackgroundPhysical inactivity increases the risk of atherosclerosis. However, the molecular mechanisms of this relation are poorly understood. A recent report indicates that endostatin, an endogenousExpand

VEGF gene expression is upregulated in electrically stimulated rat skeletal muscle.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF; also called vascular permeability factor) is a secreted mitogen with distinct target cell specificity for vascular endothelial cells. Hypoxia upregulatesExpand

Quantitation of changes in lymph protein concentration during lymph node transit.
Many investigators assume the protein concentration and colloid osmotic pressure of interstitial fluid and lymph to be identical even after the lymph has passed through a lymph node. We quantitatedExpand

Whole body structural vascular adaptation to prolonged hypoxia in chick embryos.
We studied the role of hypoxia in the development of the blood vascular system using functional measurements of whole body and hindlimb structural vascular resistance in the chick embryo. The methodExpand

Modification of lymph by lymph nodes. II. Effect of increased lymph node venous blood pressure.
A previous study from this laboratory demonstrated that lymph nodes can change the protein concentration and colloid osmotic pressure of lymph by transfer of protein-free fluid between the blood andExpand

Long-term electrical stimulation of rabbit skeletal muscle increases growth of paired arteries and veins.
We tested whether chronic stimulation of skeletal muscle can increase the growth of paired arteries and veins in rabbit extensor digitorum longus muscle (EDL). The right EDL of female New ZealandExpand
