|Principal investigator||Ming Kuang, MD|
|Description||Several studies have documented the elevated expression of VEGF, VEGFR1 and VEGFR2 in cancer cell lines. Another study observed a sequential elevation of VEGF in low-grade dysplasia, high-grade dysplasia and early stage liver cancer. Clinical analyses have discovered the high expression of VEGF is correlated with tumor progression, vascular invasion, distal metastasis and poor prognosis. However, few studies have been conducted to investigate the VEGF signaling in ECC cells and its possible mechanism in regulating ECC growth.Therefore,we try to clarify the mechanism of VEGF signal in ECC growth,proliferation and apoptosis.|
