We explored this by explant and perfusion methods.We tested two chorionic villous explants methodologies to validate them for 4h and 24h duration studies, and found that a free floating methodology which sought to replicate the in utero flow was not appropriate, as this resulted in high basal levels of endothelial VEGF and low junctional VE cadherin, a feature that we hypothesised to be a wound healing response.
