The study of vascular permeability has been focused in part on the structure of endothelial cells which line the vascular system. The importance of endothelial cell junctions, fenestra and vesicles in the regulation of vascular permeability is now well established. Newer ultrastructural techniques such as immuno-gold labelling1 and rapid freezing2 have confirmed numerous earlier studies which established that endothelial cell structure regulates the transendothelial transport of solutes.
