We show here, using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging, that injured tissue provides a favourable milieu for the neovascularization and growth of C6 glioma spheroids, implanted subcutaneously in nude mice. Moreover, the presence of micro-tumours in an injured tissue inhibited the healing process, leaving an open persistent wound. In correlation with… CONTINUE READING
