Endothelial Progenitors: A Consensus Statement on Nomenclature
Endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) nomenclature remains ambiguous and there is a general lack of concordance in the stem cell field with many distinct cell subtypes continually grouped under the termExpand

Matrix Metalloproteinase-8 Is Expressed in Rheumatoid Synovial Fibroblasts and Endothelial Cells
Neutrophil collagenase (matrix metalloproteinase-8 or MMP-8) is regarded as being synthesized exclusively by polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN). However, in vivo MMP-8 expression was observed inExpand

Endothelial dysfunction and pathogenesis of diabetic angiopathy.
OBJECTIVE AND METHODS To review, from the clinical perspective, the contribution of dysfunction of the vascular endothelium to the pathogenesis of diabetic micro- and macroangiopathy. RESULTSExpand

Polarized vascular endothelial growth factor secretion by human retinal pigment epithelium and localization of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors on the inner choriocapillaris. Evidence for
The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) maintains the choriocapillaris (CC) in the normal eye and is involved in the pathogenesis of choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration.Expand

Involvement of RhoA/Rho Kinase Signaling in VEGF-Induced Endothelial Cell Migration and Angiogenesis In Vitro
Objective—Growth factor-induced angiogenesis involves migration of endothelial cells (ECs) into perivascular areas and requires active remodeling of the endothelial F-actin cytoskeleton. The smallExpand

Inhibition of MMP Synthesis by Doxycycline and Chemically Modified Tetracyclines (CMTs) in Human Endothelial Cells
Doxycycline is a commonly used broad-spectrum antibiotic. Recently, it has been shown that it also inhibits the activity of mammalian collagenases and gelatinases, an activity unrelated to itsExpand

Substrate stiffening promotes endothelial monolayer disruption through enhanced physical forces.
A hallmark of many, sometimes life-threatening, inflammatory diseases and disorders is vascular leakage. The extent and severity of vascular leakage is broadly mediated by the integrity of theExpand

Role of methylglyoxal adducts in the development of vascular complications in diabetes mellitus.
Various theories have been proposed to explain the hyperglycaemia-induced pathogenesis of vascular complications of diabetes, including detrimental effects of AGEs (advanced glycation end products)Expand

Microtubule-targeting agents inhibit angiogenesis at subtoxic concentrations, a process associated with inhibition of Rac1 and Cdc42 activity and changes in the endothelial cytoskeleton
Conventional anticancer agents may display antiangiogenic effects, but the underlying mechanism is poorly understood. We determined the antiangiogenic properties of cisplatin, doxorubicin, and theExpand

von Willebrand factor, C-reactive protein, and 5-year mortality in diabetic and nondiabetic subjects: the Hoorn Study.
Increased levels of von Willebrand factor (vWf) and C-reactive protein (CRP) predict cardiovascular mortality in selected populations. It is uncertain whether vWf and CRP predict mortality in aExpand
