Based on the recent reports, circulating endothelial progenitor cells play an important role in the pathogenesis of vascular-related disorders. It is suggested that ischemia triggers endothelial progenitor cells to proceed from bone marrow into peripheral blood. Consequently, the mobilized endothelial progenitor cells may contribute to neovasculogenesis within injured retina and/or choroid tissue. Hence, in the present review the potential relationship between development of vascular retinal… CONTINUE READING
