BACKGROUND It is unknown whether traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors influence the number of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) and whether numbers of EPCs correlate with endothelial function in patients with end-stage renal disease. METHODS In a cross-sectional study of 38 peritoneal dialysis patients, we examined numbers of circulating CD34+/KDR+/CD133+ cells, CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells, and EPCs cultured from peripheral blood. We also assessed conventional cardiovascular… CONTINUE READING
