Paper Abstract

An in vivo shell-less chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) brain tumor model has been developed to investigate the effects of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and anti-antiogenic treatments. Multicellular human glioma spheroids were placed on the CAM at day 7 of embryonic development. Angiogenesis was observed four days post implantation. Significant damage to the CAM vasculature was observed immediately following 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) mediated PDT.
