Endothelial Progenitor Cells Are Related to Glycemic Control in Children With Type 1 Diabetes Over Time

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The risk of cardiovascular death before the age of 40 is 20-fold higher in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) predict cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients without diabetes. We hypothesized that EPCs are modified in children with T1DM and are related to characteristics of T1DM such as… (More)
