Table 1. Extent of cornea angiogenesis after implantation of various hydron pellets

Mean length of new vessels and area of neovascularization upon administration of vasostatin (VS) and phosphate buffered saline (PBS) on basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) induced angiogenesis in rat corneas on day 7. After implantation of various hydron pellets for 7 days, neovascularization of rat corneas was measured using image analysis. The dose of bFGF and VS in each pellet was 90 ng and 180 ng, respectively. The asterisk indicates a significant difference (p<0.01) from the bFGF group. PBS represents the blank control pellet containing no investigative protein. bFGF+VS is a concomitant addition of bFGF with VS in the hydron pellet. In the "Length" column, the units are mm; in the "Area" column, the units are mm2.
