Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)


In this report we describe the microvascular morphology of the experimental astrocytoma (2 mm or less in diameter) produced in nude mice (Yoshida 1983) and compare the architectural characteristics of the microvasculature with that of the developing rat cerebellum (Yoshida el al. 1985).
