Investigation into the contribution of the immune system and inflammatory cascade to acute rejection (AR) and cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) has implicated vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The endomyocardial biopsy (EB) has proved invaluable in the diagnosis of AR, and in providing information concerning the biological processes occurring following transplantation. The association between VEGF and AR and the development of CAV was examined in endomyocardial biopsies (EBs) from a… CONTINUE READING
