Among their topics are the transcriptional regulation of angiogenesis, local and regional vascular delivery, protein growth factors in myocardial angiogenesis, current approaches and future directions in therapeutic angiogenesis for peripheral arterial disease, transplanting embryonic stem cells, and transmyocardial laser revascularization.
the leader in carbon dioxide (CO2) TransMyocardial Revascularization (TMR) technology used to treat severe angina, or heart pain, today announced that a study published in the May 2005 issue of The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery reports an increase in angiogenesis within the heart as a result of a combination of revascularization therapies: CO2 transmyocardial laser revascularization plus matrix adenoviral fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) gene therapy.

ECRI's recent technology assessment report examines the available published evidence on the effectiveness of surgical transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMR) and a more recent form of the procedure, percutaneous (catheter-based) myocardial revascularization (PMR) for treating angina, when compared to or combined with standard medical therapy.
