BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) transplantation can promote neovascularization and regenerate damaged myocardium. However, it remains unknown whether MSCs seeding can be used to repair injured cellular components in vascular diseases. In this study we explored the feasibility of applying MSCs to endothelium repair in endothelial damage and vasoproliferative disorders. METHODS Ex vivo model of endothelium repair was developed in which rabbit vascular… CONTINUE READING
