|Regulation of Cervical Epithelial Proliferation by Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor
||Cervical remodeling is a complex biological process, characterized in part by vascular leakage, an increase in edema, and epithelial growth. Here, we examined the effects of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) primarily on cervical epithelial ...
|Echinacea and Preterm Labor: A Natural Remedy
||Causally, premature births largely result from inflammation and current treatments are either unsafe or ineffective. Here, our goal was to test whether the use of natural products [Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench, root extract] with anti-bacterial and...
|Estrogen and Hypoxia Regulate Levels of VEGF and its Receptors in the Mice Uterine Cervix and Are Expressed in Human
||The cervix undergoes significant changes over the course of pregnancy, such as increase in tissue size, microvascular remodeling and increase in vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptors (KDR and Flt-1). VEGF has been studied in var...
|Postpartum Cervical Repair in Mus musculus: Potential Role For Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor and Hypoxia Inducible Factor 1 Alpha in Cervical Wound Healing
||Cervical remodeling (CR) is the active process where the birth canal prepares for parturition. CR is divided into four distinct yet overlapping phases, with the first three phases taking place during gestation and parturition, whereas the fourth and ...
