We report our experience in 8 patients affected with chronic cutaneous ulcerations of the lower limbs who have been treated with local periulcerative injections of granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF, Mielogen fl 150 μg, Schering-Plough). The clinical beneficial effect obtained stimulated us to investigate the mechanism of action of GM-CSF on wound healing. Thus, we report the preliminary results of the "in situ" hybridazion analysis expression on local expression of vascular epidermal growth factor after treatment with GM-CSF.
