A better understanding of the expression profile of a group of angiogenic markers in nasal polyps (NPs) would contribute considerably to the investigation of the formation of NPs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the combined mRNA expression of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA), fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2), transforming growth factor beta1 (TGFbeta1), epidermal growth factor (EGF) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) in NPs obtained from 21 patients undergoing nasal… CONTINUE READING
