In an article published in Gene Therapy (Vol. 13, pp. 1133–1142), a group of scientists, led by Dr. R. Laguens, conclude that plasmid-mediated VEGF gene transfer reduces myocardial infarct size by a combination of effects including neovascular proliferation, modification of fibrosis and cardiomyocyte regeneration.
