27064391 Placental growth factor is a susceptibility gene for nAMD in a Chinese population, providing new evidence to support a biological role of PGF in choroidal neovascularization.
26930634 In patients with acute coronary syndrome, elevated plasma levels of PlGF are associated with the presence of obstructive sleep apnea and with adverse outcomes during short-term follow-up
26824454 PLGF enhances OVC cell invasion through MAPK-p38-dependent activation of ZEB2.
26785251 Results show that aqueous humor levels of VEGF-A and PlGF were significantly elevated in the eyes with neovascular glaucoma, and there was a positive correlation between the levels.
26775845 Our results demonstrated the pro-inflammatory and angiogenic effects of PlGF on HIMECs in IBD through activation of PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. PlGF/PI3K/Akt signaling may serve as a potential therapeutic target for IBD.
26699385 PLGF are higher in heart failure patients.
26642248 soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 and placental growth factor as biomarkers in patients with coronary artery disease
26576922 concentration of these C-reactive protein, myeloperoxidase, soluble CD40 ligand and placental growth factor were significantly increased in acute coronary syndrome patients
26418253 Study found that PLGF and MMP9 levels both significantly increased in the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) specimens and were strongly correlated. PLGF regulated MMP9 in NSCLC cells, but not vice versa.
26408539 PLGF is upregulated in vascular cells in response to fluid shear stress.
