Abstract

The benefit of organ culture is to retain the original structural relationship between various cell species and their interactions and enable us to study the long-term effects of exogenous stimuli. Organ culture methods have been used especially in the studies of the proliferative vascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and restenosis. We describe here that organ culture is a useful in vitro method to study the biology of vascular and other smooth muscle organs.
