Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 activation induces vascular permeability in hyperstimulated rats, and this effect is prevented by receptor blockade.

Abstract

The existence of a vasoactive molecule released in response to hCG is believed to be the main feature in the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in women, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is the main candidate as the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) mediator. This study was conducted to investigate the role of VEGF in… (More)
