Cover ImageCD31 immunofluorescence staining of a mesenteric window taken from a rat with liver cirrhosis. In Clinical Science volume 132, Issue 6, Huang et al. use CD31 immunofluorescence staining to show an increased density of the vascular network in the mesenteric window of rats with bile duct ligation-induced liver cirrhosis. Vascular network density is usually low in non-cirrhotic condition, indicating that mesenteric angiogenesis takes place in liver cirrhosis; for details see pages 669–683.
