dc.description.abstractAqueous extracts from local plants, such as Eucalyptus deglupta, with anti-angiogenic properties can have therapeutic potential. To test for the angiogenic effect of E. deglupta leaf extracts on the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) in duck embryos, an infusion of five grams of leaves in 1 liter of distilled water was prepared. Test groups of eight-day old embryos were treated with different concentrations of the extract, namely: 0% (for the controls), 0.01%, 0.1% and 1%. At thirteen days of age, the duck embryos were examined for the extent of angiogenesis quantified through the use of a modified planimetric count method and fractal analysis of blood vessel branching with ImageJ software. Results showed that all embryos treated with E. deglupta have reduced angiogenic response compared to the untreated controls.
