  18. Vascular responses as therapeutic targets after SCI
    Theo Hagg; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Pharmacological inhibition of VEGF reduces edema, inflammation and tissue loss in stroke models. Angiopoietin 1 (Ang1) induces vessel maturation and reduces leakage in many systems and is reduced after SCI...
  19. VEGF and Angiopoietin 1 Therapy for Stroke
    Zheng Zhang; Fiscal Year: 2003
    In this application, we propose to investigate the roles of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiopoietin 1 (Ang 1) in cerebral angiogenesis and blood brain barrier (BBB) leakage after focal cerebral embolic ischemia...

  24. Neurorestorative therapy of stroke with agents that increase HDL
    Jieli Chen; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..We hypothesize that N-or-T treatment of stroke induces endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and Angiopoietin-1(Ang1)/Tie2 signaling activity, which increase CBF, angiogenesis and arteriogenesis after stroke in mice...

    Lawrence Reynolds; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Aim 1, we will test Hypothesis l: that major angiogenic factors, namely VEGF, basic FGF (bFGF or FGF 2), and -ANG1, and their receptors, are expressed in a time- and cell-specific fashion throughout gestation...
  28. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH TO MACULOPATHY
    Stephen Ryan; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..We propose new studies on the role of the angiopoietins (Ang1, Ang2) in CNV and suggest a new model in which Ang1 and Ang2 act in concert with VEGF to mediate the development of ..
