BACKGROUND The timing and mechanisms of new blood vessel formation in the endometrium during the menstrual cycle are still largely unknown. In the present study we used the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) as an in-vivo assay for angiogenesis to assess the angiogenic potential of endometrium obtained at different stages of the menstrual cycle.

OBJECTIVE Arterial distensibility (DC) and compliance (CC) are vessel wall properties of large arteries that can be measured non-invasively with a custom made vessel wall movement detector system (VWMDS). This study investigated the reproducibility of this device in 10 volunteers. METHODS To investigate intraobserver intrasession and intraobserver(More)
This study describes the simultaneous measurement of hepatic arterial and portal venous blood flow in the pentobarbital anesthetized rat by means of electromagnetic flowmeters. Hepatic arterial flow was 0.21 +/- 0.02 mL/min/g liver, and portal venous flow was 1.53 +/- 0.19 mL/min/g liver (n = 20). Flows remained stable for more than 3 hr. A clear advantage(More)
The chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) is an established in vivo angiogenesis assay. The aim of our study was to assess the angiogenic properties of endometrium and to quantitate the vascular response in an accurate way. Samples of proliferative endometrium (n = 17) and control mouse skin tissue (n = 8) were explanted onto the CAM at day 10 of(More)
Angiotensin II was applied daily in doses of 67 or 670 ng to a section of the chick embryo chorio-allantoic membrane from day 7 to day 14 after fertilization of the eggs. During this one-week period, it caused a significant, dose-dependent increase in the vascular density index. The increase obtained with 670 ng daily was comparable to that after daily(More)
Effects of Captopril. Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology (1991) 23, 1245-1253. This study was undertaken to investigate the alterations in interstitial DNA synthesis and collagen content in the non-infarcted left and right ventricle after induction of a myocardial infarction (MI) in the rat. MI was induced by ligation of the left anterior(More)
Adrenaline caused a decrease in arterial blood pressure and heart rate when injected into the anterior thalamic region of rats. The size and the duration of these effects depended upon the dose of adrenaline injected. Adrenaline is 10 times more potent than noradrenaline in inducing these intrahypothalamic effects on cardiovascular parameters. These data(More)
