New increase in superoxide production in neurons/glia and blood vessel cells was found on D30, accompanied with increased [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] production in the internal elastic membrane. Also, the blue autofluorescence of the internal elastic membrane was the most intensive in the whole development.
It has also shown that there is a correlation between the absence of elastic fibers and the presence of discontinuities in the internal elastic membrane. This enhances the development of intimal hyperplasia and graft occlusion (van Son et al, 2006).
