Enhancement of angiogenesis by the implantation of self bone marrow cells in a rat ischemic heart model.

Abstract

Background. Bone marrow contains various kinds of primitive cells which differentiate into endothelial cells and could secrete several growth factors. Therefore, we attempted to induce therapeutic angiogenesis using self bone marrow cells in a rat model. Materials and methods. Quantitative angiogenesis was examined using a sponge implantation assay that… (More)
