Angiogenic therapies have been designed for many pathological conditions, but when used as a single therapy, the clinical results have fallen short of expectations. In addition, strategies for vascularizing engineered tissues have been unsuccessful in promoting the formation of an extensive, stable vasculature. Recent evidence suggests that mural cells play a critical role in the success of these approaches, but our current understanding of the function of mural cells in the microvasculature is… CONTINUE READING
