Mesoangioblasts, vessel-associated multipotent stem cells, repair the infarcted heart by multiple cellular mechanisms: a comparison with bone marrow progenitors, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To test the potential of mesoangioblasts (Mabs) in reducing postischemic injury in comparison with bone marrow progenitor cells (BMPCs), fibroblasts (Fbs), and embryonic stem cell-derived endothelial cells (ECs), and to identify putative cellular protective mechanisms. METHODS AND RESULTS Cells were injected percutaneously in the left… (More)
