BACKGROUND: Future supply with allogeneic blood transfusions faces several crucial challenges that warrant thorough (re-)evaluation of existing alternatives. Meta-analyses have indicated a significant potential for autologous blood conservation (ABC) measures to reduce the need for allogeneic blood transfusions. The quality of currently available studies, however, prohibits definite conclusions. Under these ...

Zebrafish brain ventricle morphogenesis involves an initial circulation-independent opening followed by a blood flow- and circulation-dependent expansion process. Zebrafish claudin-5a is required for the establishment of a neuroepithelial-ventricular barrier, which maintains the hydrostatic pressure within the ventricular cavity, thereby contributing to brain ventricle opening and expansion. In mammalia, several claudin ...

The blood vessels of cancerous tumours are leaky and poorly organized. This can increase the interstitial fluid pressure inside tumours and reduce blood supply to them, which impairs drug delivery. Anti-angiogenic therapies--which 'normalize' the abnormal blood vessels in tumours by making them less leaky--have been shown to improve the delivery ...
