Abstract

Natural tissue induction process within an animal body was observed. A small implantable video camera system with a scaffold was developed. The camera system was implanted into a muscle section of a goat and induction process was observed for several months. Plural cell species that comprises muscle tissue were induced. Vigorous angigenesis was observed at the front region of tissue induction resulting dense distribution of capillary vessels and red blood cells. The density of capillary vessels reduced considerably behind the front region and arterioles and venules started to appear. Frequent interconnections of blood vessels as well as major blood flow route changes were observed.
