Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has a key role in angiogenesis and in transplantation. The level of VEGF is related to the differences in the DNA sequence of its promoter region.
In this study, the association between the combination of VEGF -1154 G and -2578 C alleles and VEGF production by LPS-stimulated PBMCs was investigated.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a major mediator of angiogenesis, and nitric oxide (NO) is an upstream and downstream regulator of VEGF mediated angiogenesis. VEGF and NO have been suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of microvascular complications in diabetic retinopathy (DR). The objective of this study was to examine the genetic variations of the VEGF and eNOS gene and assess their possible relationship to DR in type 2 diabetic patients in the Indian population.

Acute rejection is a major cause of reduced survival of renal allografts. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a mitogen for endothelial cells and is expressed widely by renal tissue and T cells. VEGF influences adhesion and migration of leukocytes across the endothelium.

To examine potential associations of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene polymorphisms with giant cell arteritis (GCA) and disease expression, in particular in patients with and without ischemic complications.
We enrolled 92 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven GCA residing in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Two hundred healthy blood donors from the same geographic area were selected as controls.

Recent studies have indicated that cytokines can enhance immunogenicity and promote tumor regression. However, the means for modulating cytokine production are not yet fully investigated. In this study we report the effects of a herbal melanin, extracted from Nigella sativa L.
