VEGF-A produced by chronically inflamed tissue induces lymphangiogenesis in draining lymph nodes.


Lymphangiogenesis is involved in tumor cell metastasis and plays a major role in chronic inflammatory disorders. To investigate the role of lymphangiogenesis in inflammation, we induced and maintained delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactions in the ears of mice and then analyzed the resulting lymphangiogenesis in the inflamed tissue and draining lymph… (More)
