Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant vascular disorder. Circulating angiogenic cells (CACs) play an important role in vascular repair and regeneration. This study was designed to examine the function of CACs derived from patients with HHT. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNCs) isolated from patients with HHT and age-(More)
We have analyzed allele frequency distribution at the hypervariable locus 3' to the apolipoprotein B gene in a healthy population sample (241 women and 246 men) from the Belgrade area. The bimodal distribution of sixteen different hypervariable region (HVR) alleles and the heterozygosity index (average 0.76) in both samples are similar to ones reported for(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in vascular repair and maintenance of vascular homeostasis through re-endothelialization and neovascularization. Cardiovascular risk factors that contribute to coronary artery disease (CAD) have been shown to negatively impact EPCs, although the mechanisms are poorly understood. MicroRNAs (miRNAs)(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) have been used in clinical trials to treat ischemic heart disease. Monocyte infiltration plays an important role in inflammation, angiogenesis, and tissue repair during tissue ischemia. It is important to understand the interactions between EPCs and monocytes. In this study, a human EPC/THP-1 monocytic cell coculture(More)
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs), which can lead to life-threatening bleeding and other complications, have been reported to occur in 30-50% of patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as new biomarkers for human diseases. This study was conducted to explore circulating miRNAs as(More)
