The objective of this study was to investigate safety and feasibility of autologous bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNC) transplantation in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), comparing anterograde intracoronary artery (ICA) delivery with retrograde intracoronary vein (ICV) approach. An open labeled, randomized controlled trial of 30 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a pleiotropic factor for hematopoiesis that stimulates myeloblasts, monoblasts and mobilization of bone marrow stem cells. Therefore, the GM-CSF gene is a potential candidate for vessel formation and tissue remodeling in the treatment of ischemic diseases. METHODS A new mouse limb ischemia was(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has mostly been tested to treat ischemic diseases, although the outcomes obtained are not satisfactory. Our hypothesis is that the local transient expression of VEGF and stem cell mobilizer granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) genes in ischemic limbs can complement their activities and be more(More)
