I am running a cell proliferation assay as well as trying to determine if my cells release VEGF. Ultimately, I want to know if my drugs can inhibit both of these processes. I have read many papers and some say that they allow the cells to adhere for 24 hours (or 12 hours) before giving them treatment and some say they just add the treatment right after they plate the cells. Is there a difference? Is one way better than another? Why do you have to allow them to adhere first? I am using Lewis Lung Carcinoma cells if this makes a difference. Please help!!
Thanks in advance.
