Stretch in Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cells (cEND) as an In Vitro Traumatic Brain Injury Model of the Blood Brain Barrier Ellaine Salvador1, Winfried Neuhaus1,2, Carola Foerster1 1Klinik und Poliklinik für Anästhesiologie, Zentrum für operative Medizin der Universität Würzburg, 2Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Vienna In vitro traumatic brain injury models are being developed to reproduce in vivo brain deformation. Stretch-induced injury has been employed for astrocytes, neurons, glial cells, aortic, and brain endothelial cells. However, our system uses a blood brain barrier (BBB) model that possesses properties constituting a legitimate model of the BBB to establish an in vitro TBI model.
