BACKGROUND Stem cell mobilization with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been proposed to improve cardiac function and prevent ventricular remodeling after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in preclinical and clinical studies. It has been demonstrated that granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) can improve collateral flow in patients with coronary artery disease. In this study, we used GM-CSF to mobilize the bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) in patients with AMI… CONTINUE READING
