In vivo angiogenic activity of erythropoietin

Abstract

The role of erythropoietin (Epo) has been demonstrated in tissues outside the hematopoietic system, including the cardiovascular system, where Epo promotes various effects in endothelial cells. Here, we have demonstrated the angiogenic capacity of recombinant human Epo (rhuEpo) in vivo, by means of the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay, a well-established in vivo assay to study angiogenesis and antiangiogenesis.
