The oral administration of aFGF induced angiogenesis in the ulcer bed and accelerated the healing of ulcers in animals [38].
No entanto, nem sempre ha correlacao entre a densidade microvascular e a expressao de VEGF, visto que outros fatores proangiogenicos tambem sao necessarios para maturacao e funcionamento dos novos vasos (AMORIM, 2009), com destaque para o fator de crescimento derivado de plaquetas (platelet-derived growth factor, PDGF), fator de crescimento fibroblastico acido e basico (acidic fibroblast growth factor, aFGF e basic fibroblast growth factor, bFGF), prostaglandina [E.sub.2] e interleucina8 (CHUN & THAMM, 2007).
In one study, it was shown that the addition of FGFI protein (formerly referred to as "aFGF," or "acidic FGF") to isolated cultured corneas would trigger lens cell differentiation.
Using cultured endothelial cells, Kaji et al (91) showed that lead nitrate causes denudation of endothelial monolayer, reduces proliferation and attenuates basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and acidic fibroblast growth factor (aFGF) induced growth in cultured bovine aorta endothelial cells (92).

Actually eating food helps build up memory power, possibly owing to a surge to the brain in acidic fibroblast growth factor (aFGF), a substance which seems to help 'stick' memories more firmly in the hippocampus - the centre for memory and learning in the brain.
