BACKGROUND/AIMS Significantly enhanced serum levels of VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) were found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells have been identified as one of the origins of the circulating VEGF. The present investigation examines the localization of VEGF at the site of inflammation in colonic mucosa of patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. METHODOLOGY Immunohistochemical localization of VEGF and immunostaining for… CONTINUE READING
