Expression of Serum Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor and Angiopoietin Receptor Tie-2 in Essential Hypertension

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.357
Synopsis: 
In this study, we aimed to investigate the serum levels of VEGF and angiopoetin receptor Tie-2 in patient with essential hypertension. A total of 90 individuals were included. The data indicate that serum levels of VEGF and Tie-2 receptor may be related to the primer hypertension.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Hypertension is a common but incompletely understood disease. Emerging evidence supports a novel view of hypertension as a disease of inadequate or aberrant responses to angiogenic factors. In the present study we aimed to investigate the serum levels

of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an angiogenic factorand soluble angiopoetin receptor Tie-2 (sTie-2) in patient with essential hypertension.

Antidepressant-like Effect of EGb 761 in Rats with Chronic Mild Stress-induced Depressive Behaviors

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.087
Synopsis: 
EGb 761 possesses antidepressant activity in rats exposed to CMS. Besides, it can partially reverse the alterations of IL-1β, IL-6, VEGF and HPA axis dysfunction induced by CMS in rats.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aims were to investigate the effects of EGb 761 on depressive behaviors in rats exposed to chronic mild stress (CMS) and the possible mechanisms of the actions.
