Comparative studies of the angiogenic activity of vasoactive intestinal peptide, endothelins-1 and -3 and angiotensin II in a rat sponge model.

Abstract

1 The angiogenic activity of four vasoactive peptides with a range of vasodilator and vasoconstrictor properties, i.e. vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), endothelin-1, endothelin-3 and angiotensin II, were investigated in a rat sponge model. Neovascularization was assessed by the 133Xe clearance technique and confirmed by histological studies. 2 Daily… (More)
