..Thus, this finding that TXA(2) mimetics can prevent HEC migration and tube formation, possibly by impairing intercellular communication, suggests that antagonizing TXA(2) signaling might enhance vascularization of ischemic tissue. ..

..These data further support a role for antagonism of TP activation in enhancing the angiogenic response in tissues exposed to elevated TXA2 levels in which revascularization is important. ..
