Abstract

We quantitatively evaluated how vascular networks reconstructed in a microfluidic device were remodeled under a pressure-driven flow. We fabricated a PDMS device, and co-cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and normal human lung fibroblasts (hLFs) to spontaneously reconstruct vascular networks. After a pressure-driven flow (0-120 μL/h) was applied to the vascular networks for 24 hours, we found the number of angiogenic sprouting increasing with the increase of flow rate and perfusion time.
