BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a polypeptide growth factor that is activated by tissue hypoxia. The role of VEGF in perinatal asphyxia in human neonates is yet to be clarified. In infants who develop moderate to severe acute hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) it is crucial to clearly understand physiologic and biochemical changes that accompany HIE before a novel treatment can be developed. OBJECTIVES To assess VEGF in cord blood of infants suffering from perinatal… CONTINUE READING
