Morphology and Pathomorphology


It is shown that a static magnetic field accelerates the growth rate of endothelial cells from the bovine pulmonary artery, but has no effect on the attachment and growth of cells from the human umbilical vein. A static magnetic field markedly stimulates the differentiation of endotheliocytes from the human umbilical vein to capillary-like structures.
