Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) have been known to be potent stimulators of vascular endothelial cell proliferation and angiogenesis. Recent experimental evidence indicates that basic FGF (bFGF) is also involved in modulation of arterial pressure. In this study, we investigated the effects of acidic FGF (aFGF) and bFGF on muscle microcirculation using… CONTINUE READING
