Another study examined the expression of LIF in vivo using transgenic mice and suggested that LIF is a potent inhibitor of retinal vascular development.[27] The present study showed that the abnormal vessels were obviously ameliorated in the diabetic mice after they were intravitreally injected with LIF; however, neither the physiological role of LIF in angiogenesis nor the precise underlying mechanisms in the vasoinhibitory effect is known.
The responses were classified as vasoinhibitory, cardioinhibitory, or mixed inhibitory.
In the VVS group, 34 patients showed a vasoinhibitory response, while the other 22 patients had a mixed inhibitory response during the HUT.
