Abstract: Background. The role of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) for the impaired angiogenic response in diabetic patients is not well known. We investigated the impact of RAGE suppression by soluble RAGE (sRAGE) on the angiogenic response in a diabetic hindlimb ischemia mouse model. Materials and Methods. Hindlimb ischemia model was prepared by ligation of femoral artery in diabetic and nondiabetic mice. Ischemia-induced angiogenic response was evaluated by laser-Doppler perfusion imaging, musc…
