/st> Molecular factors modulating angiogenic responses are dysregulated in patients with MCTD and SSc with increases of VEGF in MCTD and SSc and selective upregulation of endostatin in MCTD. Furthermore, high serum levels of VEGF might characterise patients with MCTD with a more severe course of the disease with increased prevalence of PAH and myositis.
