Adipose tissue expresses some bioactive molecules, which may be involved in the development of obesity-associated metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) an important angiogenic factor is implicated in normal and pathological vessel formation. The aim of this study is to investigate clinically the association between blood serum VEGF concentrations and body fat accumulation as well as distribution. The study also aims to show the effect of… CONTINUE READING
