    Neurovascular remodeling has been recently recognized as a promising target for neurologic therapies. Hopes have emerged that, by stimulating vessel growth, it may be possible to stabilize brain perfusion, and at the same time promote neuronal survival, brain plasticity, and neurologic recovery....

    An abstract of the study "Systemic Hypoxia Leads to Increased Permeability and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Expression in Mice Brain" is presented. It discusses the role played by the induction of VEGF expression in the development of brain edema during systemic hypoxia that may...

    Summary. Background: Therapeutic cerebral angiogenesis, utilizing angiogenic factors to enhance collateral vessel formation within the central nervous system, is a potential method for cerebral revascularization. A prior dose-response study determined that intracerebroventricular infusion of...

    The article discusses a study on the role of inflammation in brain edema after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in rats. Brain water content increased progressively after ICH and reached its peak at 48 hours. Inflammatory levels of neutrophils and immunopositive cells reached their peak after 48...

  • AQP-4 in peritumoral edematous tissue is correlated with the degree of glioma and with expression of VEGF and HIF-alpha. Mou, Kejie; Chen, Mina; Mao, Qing; Wang, Peng; Ni, Renyong; Xia, Xiaoqiang; Liu, Yanhui // Journal of Neuro-Oncology;Dec2010, Vol. 100 Issue 3, p375 

    It is recognized that expression of AQP4 protein is much greater in gliomas than in normal tissue. The relationship between AQP4 and glioma-associated brain edema is affected by osmotic pressure and hypoxia. In this study, we detected changes of AQP4 expression in tumor and peritumoral edematous...

    In response to hypoxia, adaptive hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) signaling events are activated to increase oxygen transport, anaerobic energy production and protective pathways to minimize ischemic tissue damage. Although the activation and subsequent induction of gene transcription by HIF-1...
