  • Vascular endothelial growth factor/vascular permeability factor (VEGF/VPF) originating from the follicle or corpus luteum may be a physiological regulator of ovulation and neovascularization of luteinizing tissue, as well as a pathological factor in the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). The objective of this study was to quantify VEGF production by human luteinized granulosa cells in vitro and to determine if gonadotrophin stimulates VEGF production directly and/or… CONTINUE READING
