Background: Cardiac progenitor cell transfer may improve myocardial repair after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but responsible cell types and mechanisms remain uncertain. Methods: In a blinded, randomized, controlled study, we infused allogeneic porcine LentiGFP-infected mesenchymal stem cells (MSC, n=11, 10±2x10 6 CD29 – 44 –90 cells, capable of adipogenic and osteogenic differentiation), autologous late-outgrowth endothelial progenitor cells (EPC, n=10, 34±22x10 6 CD29 –31 cells, capable… CONTINUE READING
