    T cells expressing a type-2 T helper profile of cytokines (Th2 cells) have been demonstrated to play an important role in the initiation and progression of allergic asthma, and it is well known that Fas ligand (FasL) induces apoptosis when bound to its receptor, Fas. In the present study, we...

    Natural inhibitors of angiogenesis are able to block pathological neovascularization without harming the preexisting vasculature. Here we show that two such inhibitors, thrombospondin-1 and pigment epithelium?derived factor, derive specificity for remodeling vessels from their dependence on...
