Damaged capillaries in the brain may set the stage for the development of Alzheimer's disease, years before symptoms appear.
Capillary constriction caused by amyloid beta restricts cerebral blood flow in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. Inhibiting the capillary constriction may potentially reduce some of the neurodegenerative features of Alzheimer's.
Researchers have developed a new method to produce 3D networks of blood vessels.
A new study reports a modified $40 cotton candy machine could hold the key to creating artificial organs and capillary networks.
