Irradiated cultured apoptotic peripheral blood mononuclear cells regenerate infarcted myocardium.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is followed by post AMI cardiac remodelling, often leading to congestive heart failure. Homing of c-kit+ endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) has been thought to be the optimal source for regenerating infarcted myocardium. METHODS Immune function of viable peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was evaluated… (More)
