A limited number of studies suggested that in ischemic stroke patients, the number of bone marrow circulating progenitor cells (CPCs), either endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) or CPCs, was negatively correlated with the number of infarcts as well as with the outcome. The aim of this study was to simultaneously measure CPCs and EPCs in the acute phase of ischemic stroke, and to establish whether a relationship exists with stroke severity and discharge outcome. In 67 (40 M; 27 F) ischemic… CONTINUE READING
