A CAM assay (Chorioallantoic membrane assay) uses a fertilised chicken egg as an
All the CAM studies were performed by Giulia Djaha.
For a control we used microspheres without any cells. We were surprised when examining
these microspheres as they had been fully infiltrated by the chicks cells. This had
been accomplished under 7 days which is much faster than the ingrowth of cells we
observed in in-
When microspheres containing human cells were injected into the CAM assay, high levels
of blood vessels were found to form (see image left). Interestingly solid microspheres
