The presence of endothelial cell-stimulating angiogenic factor (ESAF) in diseased human vitreous humour has been established.

The biological activity of ESAF from human vitreous was demonstrated by its ability to induce positive responses in the rabbit corneal pocket, and in the chick chorioallantoic membrane and yolk sac membrane tests.
