Adenoviral-mediated transfer of vascular endothelial growth factor 121 cDNA enhances myocardial perfusion and exercise performance in the nonischemic state
Gene Transfer Techniques
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor A
Adenovirus encoding-mediated transfer of vascular endothelial growth factor 121 induces an enhancement in regional perfusion in nonischemic myocardium that corresponds to changes in exercise tolerance. Adenovirus-encoding vascular endothelial growth factor therapy may be useful for inducing angiogenesis in the nonischemic state, such as for prophylactic therapy of early coronary artery disease.
