Pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors in the degradation of osteoarthritic cartilage

Zhang, Xufang (2015) Pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors in the degradation of osteoarthritic cartilage. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project has determined angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors in osteoarthritis cartilage. The work has expanded our knowledge and understanding of the importance of anti-angiogenic factors in maintaining cartilage homeostasis. This study also tested the concept of topical application of anti-angiogenic treatment strategy for osteoarthritis.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
