Results: Amblyomin-Xy reduced the number of vessels in the subcutaneousation (10ng=31.7% and 100ng/10L =42.7% in com-he rst day of treatment) and the tumor growth. Onlynce of VEGF, Amblyomin-X reduced endothelial cellnto the lesion focus during all period of time mon-pendently of PGE2 and NO secretion (10ng=16.4%10L =23.1% in comparison to the control). Discussion:cation of Amblyomin-X reduces, in vivo, the num-rocirculatory vessels and tumor growth. Impairmentlial cell migration may suggest an effect on new ves-ion. Future investigations will be carried out to clarifyisms involved in this process.
