Intragingival endotoxin injection induces a model of periodontal disease characterized by rapid bone loss with biochemical features similar to that of naturally occurring adult periodontitis.

A major obstacle in the study of angiogenesis and the testing of new agents with anti-angiogenic potential has been the lack of experimental models with predictive in vivo value. We describe here the combined use of in vitro and in vivo angiogenesis models that are based on endochondral bone development. This approach led to the identification of a new(More)
