The chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) is an extraembryonic membrane which serves as a fuel trade floor and its functionality is supported through a dense capillary community. as a result of its wide vascularization and straightforward accessibility, the CAM has been largely used to review the morpho-functional features of the angiogenesis strategy in vivo and to enquire the efficacy and mechanisms of motion of pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic common and artificial molecules. The CAM is an acceptable website for transplanting tissues, which could live to tell the tale and boost within the CAM by way of peripheral anastomoses among graft and unique CAM vasculature or by way of new angiogenic vessels grown from the CAM that invade the graft. whereas the formation of peripheral anastomoses among host and pre-existing donor vessels is the most, and the commonest, mechanism curious about the revascularization of embryonic grafts, the expansion of CAM-derived vessels into the graft is simply prompted in tumor grafts. The CAM has lengthy been a well-liked method for the learn of tumor angiogenesis and metastasis, simply because at this level the chick immunocompetence approach isn't totally built and the stipulations for rejection haven't been confirmed. Tumors stay avascular for seventy two h, and then they're penetrated by means of new blood vessels and start a part of fast development. additionally, supply of tumor cells onto the CAM permits the effective learn of the consequences of tumor derived angiogenic development elements on blood vessel constitution and performance. The CAM can also used to ensure the facility to inhibit the expansion of capillaries by means of implanting tumors onto the CAM and through evaluating tumor development and vascularization without or with the management of an anti-angiogenic molecule. different reviews utilizing the tumor cells/CAM version have serious about the invasion of the chorionic epithelium and the blood vessels by way of tumor cells. The cells invade the epithelium and the mesenchymal connective tissue less than, the place they're present in the shape of a dense mattress of blood vessels, that's a aim for intravasation.

The disks are pre-soaked in test compounds and are usually dried before grafting on the CAM. The test substance can be soaked in inert synthetic polymers laid upon the CAM: Elvax 40 (ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer) and hydron (a poly-2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate polymer) are commonly used. The two polymers were first described and validated by Langer and Folkman (1976): both provided to be biologically inert when implanted onto the CAM and both were found to polymerize in the presence of the test substance, allowing its sustained release during the assay.

(1980) test material is suspended/dissolved in the polymer, after which methylene chloride is removed by vacuum drying. A more sustained release can be achieved by “sandwiching” the test substance between two Elvax layers. The polymers cause the substance to be released at constant rates (nanograms to micrograms) around the clock. Methylcellulose disks are more widely used and are prepared usually as a final concentration of 1% solution of methylcellulose and then the agent of interest is added to the solution.
