Prof. Arnon Blum – Inhibition of Endothelial Progenitor Cells in the first 24 hours of an Acute Ischemic Cerebrovascular Event

Abstract Background: Endothelial progenitor cells may have a role in ongoing endothelial repair. Impaired mobilization or depletion of these cells may contribute to progression of vascular disease. Our hypothesis was that endothelial progenitor cells would be suppressed in patients with acute cerebrovascular event based on our previous study that found severe endothelial dysfunction in those patients.…
