Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9426291A1] Sustained release dosage forms of TGF-beta activators and TGF-beta production stimulators are employed to maintain or increase vessel lumen diameter in a diseased or injured vessel of a mammal. Conditions such as restenosis following angioplasty, vascular bypass grafts, transplanted organs, atherosclerosis or hypertension are characterized by a reduced vessel lumen diameter. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, TGF-beta activators and production stimulators inhibit abnormal proliferation of smooth muscle cells. Free TGF-beta activators or production stimulators that are not characterized by an undesirable systemic toxicity profile at a prophylactic dose may be used in conjunction with the sustained release dosage forms described herein for prophylactic purposes with respect to disease and trauma states involving proliferation and/or migration of vascular smooth muscle cells over time.
