Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF)-α contributes to inflammation-associated angiogenesis. This study finds that TNF-α mice that lack receptor 1a suffered worse choroidal neovascularization (CNV), and mice that lack 1b receptors had reduced CNV. TNF-α is a cytokine that stimulates the expression of proangiogenic VEGF, induces...
