[Change in endothelial progenitor cells and endothelial function in patients with unstable angina pectoris].

OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between endothelial progenitors cells (EPCs) and endothelium-dependent vasodilation in patients with unstable angina pectoris. METHODS Thirty patients with unstable angina pectoris (UAP) and thirty control subjects were recruited. Flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in the brachial artery was evaluated by using… (More)
