Maternal endothelial progenitor colony-forming units with macrophage characteristics are reduced in preeclampsia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) provide paracrine support to the vascular endothelium and may also replace damaged or senescent endothelial cells. Low numbers of endothelial progenitor colony-forming units (CFU-ECs) in culture are a predictive biomarker of vascular disease. We hypothesized that the number of CFU-ECs derived from maternal… (More)
