Study finds key to regenerate blood vessels

New Delhi, Nov 25 (ANI): Researchers have identified a signaling pathway that is essential for the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing blood vessels. This may be a significant discovery for treatment of narrowing of heart arteries and peripheral vascular disease associated with diabetes.

The study led by researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) is important because it may help in revising strategies to improve flow of blood in ischemic tissue. There have been efforts to treat ischemia by creating new blood vessels and delivering angiogenic growth factors like vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) to ischemic sites.

But these efforts have failed to yield results yet.
