Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is essential for maintenance of the glomerular capillary network. The present study investigated the effects of VEGF in rats with progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis (GN). Necrotizing and crescentic GN was induced in rats by injection of anti-rat glomerular basement membrane (GBM) antibody. The alterations of glomerular capillaries and glomerular VEGF expression were assessed. In addition, the effects of continuous VEGF165 administration (10… CONTINUE READING
