AIMS Recent data suggest that the administration of bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSC) might improve myocardial perfusion and left ventricular (LV) function after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of this study was to assess spontaneous mobilization of BMSC expressing the haematopoietic and endothelial progenitor cell-associated antigen CD34+ after AMI and its relation to post-infarction remodelling. METHODS AND RESULTS Peripheral blood concentration of CD34+ BMSC was measured by… CONTINUE READING
