OBJECTIVES To examine (1) the molecular angiogenic relationship between endothelial and stromal cells of angiofibromas and how this may elucidate the pathogenesis of angiofibromas and (2) the effects of embolization on the expression of angiotrophic factors and proapoptotic and antiapoptotic factors within the tumor. DESIGN The expression of mesenchymal and endothelial stem/progenitor cell-associated proteins (MECAPs) such as proangiogenic cytokine vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF… CONTINUE READING
