Role of Angiogenesis in Dermatologic Diseases: A Potential Therapeutic Target

The researchers believe that pro-angiogenic factors are upregulated in a wide range of dermatologic diseases including port wine stains, hemangiomas, angiofibromas, Kaposi's sarcoma, angiosarcoma, scars, rosacea and psoriasis. The researcher can perform immunohistochemistry and/or microarray analysis and/or quantitative polymerase chain reaction on previously biopsied skin specimens and newly biopsied skin specimens to evaluate the expression of various angiogenic factors in these dermatologic diseases. In addition, some of the skin specimens may be utilized to make cell cultures to study expression of angiogenic factors and interactions of cells in dermatologic disease.
