Circulating Progenitor Cell Count for Cardiovascular Risk Stratification: A Pooled Analysis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Circulating progenitor cells (CPC) contribute to the homeostasis of the vessel wall, and a reduced CPC count predicts cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We tested the hypothesis that CPC count improves cardiovascular risk stratification and that this is modulated by low-grade inflammation. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We pooled data from… (More)
