Growth factor treatment makes no difference to angina class or exercise time in heart patients

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is safe and well-tolerated, but it does not lead to any significant improvement in exercise time or angina class in patients with heart disease who are not suitable for other forms of treatment.
