Possible Pathophysiological Role of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) and Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) in Metastatic Brain Tumor-associated Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Abstract

Intratumoral hemorrhage, as one of the cerebrovascular complications in various tumor-related conditions, occurs mainly in malignant brain tumors. Recent studies have shown that the overexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and metalloproteinase (MMP) may play a role for the loss of vascular integrity and the subsequent hemorrhage in… (More)
