Plasma angiopoietin-1, angiopoietin-2, angiopoietin receptor tie-2, and vascular endothelial growth factor levels in acute coronary syndromes.


BACKGROUND Angiopoietin (Ang) -1 and -2, their receptor Tie-2, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) regulate angiogenesis and may be important in myocardial collateral development. Elevated levels of growth factors and their receptors are reported in myocardial infarction (MI), but changes after an acute coronary event are unknown. METHODS AND… (More)
