An essential step toward printing living tissues

New method enables engineers to print tissue constructs with blood vessels A new bioprinting method developed at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences...

Engineer studies flow of blood vessels in diabetes, heart disease

People with diabetes develop early and severe heart disease, specifically atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up inside the arteries. Alisa Clyne, a...

Watching tumors burst through a blood vessel

Cancer cells metastasize in several stages — first by invading surrounding tissue, then by infiltrating and spreading via the circulatory system. Some circulating cells...

Eye injections may be needed less often

Johns Hopkins biomedical engineers have teamed up with clinicians to create a new drug-delivery strategy for a type of central vision loss caused by...

Researchers step closer to custom-building new blood vessels

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have coaxed stem cells into forming networks of new blood vessels in the laboratory, then successfully transplanted them into mice....

Why humans see clearly

A transparent cornea is essential for vision, which is why the eye has evolved to nourish the cornea without blood vessels. But for millions of people around the world, diseases of the eye or trauma spur the growth of blood vessels and can ...

Biker’s warning! EPO hits blood vessels to raise blood pressure in...

Erythropoietin or EPO might be considered a "performance enhancing" substance for athletes, but new research published online in The FASEB Journal (http://www.fasebj.org) shows that these enhancements come at a high cost--increased ris...

Study could lead to drug therapies for preventing atherosclerosis

By changing the behavior of certain cells within human blood vessels, Cornell University researchers have discovered important clues as to the underlying causes of atherosclerosis -- a discovery researchers hope can lead to more targeted drug therapi...

Monitoring engineered blood vessels as they grow in patients

Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nanoparticle technology, researchers from Yale have devised a way to monitor the growth of laboratory-engineered blood vessels after...

New System Speeds the Mapping of Blood Vessel Networks in Live...

Researchers have developed an automated system that can swiftly map capillaries in a live tumor. What used to take days of manually tracing the vessels, now takes two minutes. The diagnostic tool, in use at Harvard Medical School and at Northeastern University, is a boon to oncologists who aim to understand how blood vessels form in tumors.
