The soluble VEGF receptor 1 and 2 expression in cerebral spinal fluid as an indicator for leukemia central nervous system metastasis


Over-expression of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) is correlated with leukemia metastasis. VEGF-A acts by binding to its membrane receptors R1 and R2 present in soluble forms (sVEGFR1, sVEGFR2) with different functions. sVEGFR could inhibit VEGF-A bioactivities, associated with favorable prognosis in solid tumors. However, its role is obscure… (More)
