BACKGROUND Tissue repair often occurs in organs damaged by various inflammatory diseases including pneumonia. Inflammatory stimuli induce a rapid and massive release of inflammatory cells from the bone marrow. Recent studies have suggested that bone marrow cells have the potential to differentiate into a variety of cell types. It has been shown that administration of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to murine lungs induces a rapid release of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) into the circulation, and… CONTINUE READING
