BACKGROUND/AIMS Bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are believed to contribute to endothelial repair after vascular damage. To investigate the potential for microvascular repair in patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), we conducted a cross-sectional study determining the number of circulating EPCs in patients with AAV, chronic uremia, atherosclerosis, and in healthy volunteers. METHODS The number of circulating EPCs was determined by colony-forming assay in 41… CONTINUE READING
