From: Does VEGF facilitate local tumor growth and spread into the abdominal cavity by suppressing endothelial cell adhesion, thus increasing vascular peritoneal permeability followed by ascites production in ovarian cancer?

Co-culture of ovarian cancer cells and HUVEC. Schematic drawing illustrating the co-culture model of HUVEC (green) separated from the human ovarian cancer cells (blue) by a permeable membrane (pore size 0.4 μm). Treatments involved a negative control with HUVEC and an empty well (1.), co-culture with ovarian cancer cells (2.) and VEGF-inhibition by addition of Flt1-Fc to both cell compartments (3.) (see also Herr et al. 2012)
