The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) on angiogenesis in cultured endothelial cells. Endothelial cells obtained from bovine thoracic aorta (BAECs) were cultured between two layers of collagen type I to measure the tube formation which is a marker for angiogenesis. Addition of H2O2 (0.1-10 microM) to endothelial(More)
Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) is important in the development of macrophages and osteoclasts. Previous studies have also shown that CD11b(+) myeloblasts and osteoclasts play key roles during inflammation and bone destruction in arthritic lesions. In this study, we investigated whether(More)
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS), can be induced by the immunization of mice with myelin antigens in the form of myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG). Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) is required for the development of individual mononuclear phagocyte populations and is involved in(More)
