Novel heparanase-inhibiting antibody reduces neointima formation.

Abstract

Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), stored bound to heparan sulfate proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the arterial media, may initiate smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation after coronary intervention, thus contributing to restenosis. bFGF mobilization from ECM stores after injury may be induced by platelet degranulation products such… (More)
