Vascular endothelial growth factor genetic variability and coronary artery disease in Brazilian population

Abstract

Atherosclerosis results from a complex interaction between environment and genetic risk factors. The gene encoding vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is associated with differential protein expression and has been investigated in coronary artery disease (CAD) studies. Based on this, we aimed at determining if patients with CAD are affected by… (More)
