We describe our five year experience of conducting developmental evaluation clinic at CDC. We have also assessed the prevalence of developmental delay (defined as delay in any two areas in Denver Development Screening Test II [DDST II]), documented the possible prenatal, natal, postnatal risk factors for developmental delay and, also identified the pattern(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a significant role in multiple biological processes such as vascular homeostasis, regeneration, and tumor angiogenesis. This makes them a promising cell of choice for studying a variety of biological processes, toxicity assays, biomaterial-cell interaction studies, as well as in tissue-engineering applications.
