Pigment epithelium-derived factor inhibits the growth of human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma by suppressing neovascularization.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Neovascularization consists of angiogenesis and vasculogenesis during which bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are mobilized for blood vessel formation. Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) is known to be a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis in some solid carcinomas. However, the effects of PEDF on human esophageal… (More)
