Angiogenesis is increased in advanced haemophilic joint disease and characterized by normal pericyte coverage.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Repeated intra-articular bleedings in patients with haemophilia results in a crippling arthropathy for which no specific treatment is currently available. Recent studies have shown that neoangiogenesis is involved in the pathologic process. The aim of this study was to determine if angiogenesis is dysregulated in haemophilic joint disease (HJD).
