Permission to self-archive

Causes of primary and secondary lymphedema

Thanks to Jörg Wilting, I finally received permission from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Lymphologie (German Society for Lymphology ) to self-archive two review articles that I have been writing last year for the journal Lymphologie in Forschung ind Praxis. This is important, because otherwise, the impact sphere of the review would have been very limited. The first article discusses the molecular main players of lymphangiogenesis: VEGF-C and VEGF-D and their functions in embryonic lymphangiogenesis. The second article tries to summarize the roles that VEGF-C and VEGF-D play in diseases that are affecting the lymphatic system.
