Evaluating the Impact of Human Amnion Epithelial Cells on Angiogenesis
Collagen staining and vWF immunohistochemistry in bleomycin challenged mouse lung tissue. (a) Bleomycin challenged mice had more fibrotic tissues in the lung compared to control group; term hAEC treatment, but not preterm hAEC treatment, reduced the fibrotic tissues. (b) The percentage of vWF positive staining increased in bleomycin-injured animals compared to control group () and decreased after term () but not preterm hAEC administration. (c) The representative images for vWF immunohistochemistry in mouse lung tissues (, , and ).
