Answer

Answer

The circulating proangiogenic factors secreted by the placenta include vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and placental growth factor (PlGF). The antiangiogenic factors include soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase I receptor (sFlt-1) (otherwise known as soluble VEGF receptor type I) and soluble endoglin (sEng).
