A new study finds that VEGF-A165b is a potent antiangiogenic agent in a mouse model of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and suggests that increasing the ratio of antiangiogenic-to-proangiogenic VEGF isoforms may be therapeutically effective in this condition. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A) is the principal stimulator of...

Pericytes, the contractile cells surrounding capillaries, may use mechanical forces to initiate angiogenesis, the "sprouting" of new blood vessels, according to a new study. The study is among the first to examine mechanical signaling by pericytes as a potential driver of angiogenesis. Previously, scientists have focused on the chemical...
