Angiogenesis in rat aortic rings stimulated by very low concentrations of serum and plasma


Arterial ring cultures are evaluated for assay of angiogenic activity in physiological fluids. A simplified image analysis algorithm involving public domain software is used to measure microvessels sprouting from rat aortic rings embedded in fibrin. Low concentrations (>1% v/v) of serum and plasma stimulate angiogenesis primarily from the adventitia in a… (More)
