Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In early ontogeny, hematopoiesis is closely associated with angiogenesis. This article reviews recent studies of the effect of hematopoietic growth factors on several endothelial cell functions together with recent findings about angiogenesis and antiangiogenic therapies in hematopoietic malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
