Immunohistochemistry was performed on subcutaneous tissue sections around Bijel-Templated Material (BTM) and Particle-Templated Material (PTM) implants after 28 days in nude mice. Blood vessels were labeled with the endothelial cell marker CD31 and the pericyte marker alphaSMA. Tissue sections were imaged via fluorescence microscopy and vessel outlines residing within implants were traced and quantified. This dataset contains the raw area of traced vessels. In the first sheet of the dataset, individual vessels are listed in rows with their corresponding distance to the nearest implant boundary. In the second sheet, vessels are sorted into 200 micrometer bins, relative to the implant boundary and listed for all mice per implant type. Lastly, the third sheet lists the tissue area per each 200 micrometer bin from the implant boundary.
