Abstract:
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has a multifaceted role in bone remodelling influencing early osteoblastogenesis, promoting angiogenesis to aid bone repair and chemo-attraction of several cell types needed for bone formation. Consequently, VEGF is a good candidate for therapeutic strategies in bone healing and sue engineering. The aim of this study was to characterise osteoblast responsiveness to VEGT during osteogenesis.
