Decrease in VEGF expression induces intussusceptive vascular pruning


Hlushchuk, R; Ehrbar, M; Reichmuth, P; Heinimann, N; Styp-Rekowska, B; Escher, R; Baum, O; Lienemann, P; Makanya, A; Keshet, E; Djonov, V (2011). Decrease in VEGF expression induces intussusceptive vascular pruning. Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, 31(12):2836-2844.

Abstract

Diminution of VEGF level induces vascular tree regression by intussusceptive vascular pruning. This observation may allude to the mechanism underlying the "normalization" of tumor vasculature if treated with antiangiogenic drugs. The mechanism described here gives new insights into the understanding of the processes of vasculature regression and hence provides new and potentially viable targets for antiangiogenic and/or angio-modulating therapies during various pathological processes.
