  • Inhibition of neointima formation by local delivery of estrogen receptor alpha and beta specific agonists. Krom, Yvonne D.; Pires, Nuno M.M.; Jukema, J.

    Abstract: Objective: Neointima formation is the underlying mechanism of (in-stent) restenosis. 17�-Estradiol (E2) is known to inhibit injury-induced neointima formation and post-angioplasty restenosis. Estrogen receptor alpha (ERa) has been demonstrated to mediate E2 anti-restenotic...
