Increased circulating AC133+ CD34+ endothelial progenitor cells in children with hemangioma.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Hemangioma is the most common soft-tissue tumor of infancy. Despite the frequency of these vascular tumors, the origin of hemangioma-endothelial cells is unknown. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) have recently been identified as vascular stem cells with the capacity to contribute to postnatal vascular development. We have attempted… (More)
