Unravelling the discriminative pathomechanisms for biglycan-related aortopathy and spondylo-epi-metaphyseal dysplasia. University of Antwerp
TIE receptors as molecular switches between pro-angiogenic or vascular normalizing effects of macrophages. Ghent University
Angiogenesis, the process of blood vessel development, is an important mechanism in health and
disease. Angiogenesis is extensively being studied as a therapeutic target in conditions where
aberrant blood vessel growth worsens the clinical outcome, such as in atherosclerotic plaque
formation. However, angiogenesis is also being studied as a therapeutic tool to resupply ischemic
tissue with blood vessels. A good knowledge ...

Unravelling the role of ketone body oxidation in lymphagiogenesis KU Leuven
Not much is known about the metabolic mechanism of the lymphangiogenesis (the growth of the lymphatic vessels). According to recent discovery, the fatty acid oxidation (FAO)-derived acetyl-CoA in lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs - the cells lining the lymphatic vessels) is related to this process. Blocking FAO in LECs causes lymphangiogenesis defects and subdermal lymphedema. Since no lymphedema treatment is available, I will investigate if ...
