Angiogenesis Assays: A Critical Appraisal of Current Techniques
describes in detail the in vitro
and in vivo
assays currently being used to study angiogenesis, including the provision of protocols. The chapters are written by leading scientists who use these techniques in their angiogenesis research programs and who deliver here a critical appraisal of their strengths and weaknesses. Divided into three sections, the first section covers in vitro assays of endothelial cell activity; the second section details various in vivo angiogenesis assays; and the third section describes some of the biological endpoints being used in clinical trials to assess the clinical efficacy of anti-angiogenic drugs.
