Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The major problem with angiogenesis research is the choice of an appropriate assay. Currently, many in vitro and in vivo techniques are available for research into the functions of endothelial cells during angiogenesis. In this historical review article, we describe and evaluate the methodology and specific features of some of the most frequently used of these assays.
