Important mechanism identified in the formation of blood vessels

...elial cells, the specialised layer of cells on the interior surface of the blood vessels. Swedish scientists at Karolinska Institutet and the biotech company AngioGenetics AB have now shown that another factor called Dll4 (Delta-like 4) has a similarly fundamental role in blood vessel formation as VEGF.

Dually porous glass shows promise in helping damaged bone regenerate

... The specially fabricated glass, like the spongy interior of bone, contains interconnected pores that facilitate vascularization, the production of bone cells and the flow of blood and nutrients to all areas of the diseased or damaged bone. The glass is porous at two scales, containing nanopores that meas...

Study explores cause of exercise intolerance in heart failure patients
