Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is involved in many central nervous system disorders, including stroke, and confers neuroprotection in cerebral ischemia. In this Mini-Review, we examine in detail the in vitro and in vivo evidence for the role of VEGF in cerebral ischemia. VEGF is a therapeutic mediator for cerebral ischemia because of its angiogenic and neuroprotective effects. However, several studies indicate that the delivery route and the timing of VEGF delivery seem to determine… CONTINUE READING
