AIMS The application of autologous endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) is a promising approach in cardiovascular regeneration, but the availability of cells in appropriate numbers is the limiting factor. Allogeneic EPC would be an alternative, and we therefore analysed the immunogenicity of EPC-derived endothelial cells (EC) to evaluate their potential usefulness. METHODS AND RESULTS Circulating EPC from rat were differentiated into EC and characterized phenotypically and functionally. Major… CONTINUE READING
