The greatest neovascular response occurred during P17 to P21 (Fig. 4). This was then followed by slow regression of the new vessels with reestablishment of a more normal, branching vascular pattern, which was observed in retinal flat mounts by P24. Quantification of the neovascular response was done by counting vascular nuclei in paraffin cross sections of retina. In addition, retinal flat mounts after fluorescein-dextran perfusion and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) immunohistochemistry were also used to quantify and confirm neovascularization (80).
