Expansion of the airway wall vascular compartment has recently been established as a feature of asthma involving both enlargement of existing vascular structures and the formation of new vessels (angiogenesis). Both processes are likely to occur together and are fundamental for supporting the many aspects of tissue inflammation and remodeling manifest in the clinical symptoms of airway disease. Multiple growth factors are implicated in airway angiogenesis, with vascular endothelial growth… CONTINUE READING
