OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of gonadotropin on angiogenesis by assessing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in rat ovaries transplanted after freezing and thawing. DESIGN In vitro laboratory experiments. SETTING Academic research institute. ANIMAL(S) Sixty immature female rats. INTERVENTION(S) Frozen-thawed ovaries were autotransplanted into the SC tissue of 60 rats (ages between 21 and 28 days). After transplantation, either pregnant mare's serum gonadotropin… CONTINUE READING
