  • An adenovirus vector expressing VEGF complementary DNA is capable of stimulating an angiogenic response that protects against acute vascular occlusion in the setting of preexisting ischemia, suggesting that in vivo gene transfer of VEGF complementary DNA might be useful in prophylaxis of advancing arterial occlusive disease.
