BACKGROUND Low blood counts of CD34/kinase-insert domain receptor double-positive cells (CD34(+)/KDR(+) cells)-a leukocytes subpopulation enriched for bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPC)- predict adverse outcomes in coronary artery disease (CAD). The dependence of EPC numbers on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), another prognostic(More)
AIM To assess endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) counts, a novel prognostic marker, in relation to classical adverse outcome predictors - N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), impaired left ventricular (LV) relaxation and exercise-induced ischemia - in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) with preserved LV systolic function. METHODS We(More)
