Increased circulating endothelial progenitor cells for patients with stable coronary artery disease.

In this study, fifteen patients with angiographically documented stable coronary artery disease (CAD) were prospectively treated [...]

Redefining stem/progenitor cell principals for repair therapy.

This article discusses endothelial cells and compares the function of “endothelial cell colony-forming units” (CFU-ECs) [...]

Intravenous transfusion of endothelial progenitor cells helps to repair sites of vascular injury.

This study evaluated the role of intravenously transfused endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) on reendothelialization and neointima [...]

Type II diabetes impairs the function of EPCs, increases the risk of severe consequences from vascular occlusive events.

This study hypothesizes that endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) dysfunction may be important in diabetic complications. Their testing [...]

EPCs (bone marrow-derived stem cells) mobilize to sites of arterial injury due to acceleration from estrodiol.

This study investigated bone marrow–derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) and their role in estrogen-induced acceleration of [...]

Curcumin found to induce apoptic cell death in leukemia.

Curcumin possesses potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting activities. In this study, curcumin was found [...]

Statin therapy accelerates reendothelialization.

This investigation into whether statin therapy accelerates reendothelialization after injury shows that statins may specifically preempt disordered [...]

Inhibitors of endothelial stem cells and how to reverse the damage.

This study points out that patients with reduced numbers of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are [...]

An anti-aging herbal treatment to aid the dysfunction of mesenchymal stem cells.

The dysfunction of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells participates in the development of diseases such [...]

The mobilization of bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells.

This study identifies the mobilization factors that send bone marrow-derived circulating endothelial progenitor cells to [...]
