Spatial variations in endothelial barrier function in disturbed flows in vitro.


Hindered barrier function has been implicated in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis, a disease of focal nature associated with altered hemodynamics. In this study, endothelial permeability to macromolecules and endothelial electrical resistance were investigated in vitro in monolayers exposed to disturbed flow fields that model spatial… (More)
