Although multiphoton intravital microscopy provides unique in vivo high resolution optical images that can be used to monitor tumor progression, invasion, and response to therapy [10], it is limited to small optical windows and cannot access all tissues in the mouse [11].
Chromoendoscopy employs the use of intravital dyes, such as methylene blue and indigo carmine [39,40].
Microcapsules can provide contained environments in which tumor cells grow in a three-dimensional manner and become adjusted to the intravital environment of the host so that they can perform a cross talk with the extracellular matrix.
An advanced application of two-photon intravital fluorescence microscopy is further demonstrated by Hyun and coworkers to report the sensing of vascular permeability from the inflamed vessel of live animals.
Through the intravital microscopy assay, it was observed that LA also elevated leukocyte-endothelium interactions (rolling and adhesion) [52].
