Mobilization of circulating vascular progenitors in cancer patients receiving external beam radiation in response to tissue injury.

Abstract

PURPOSE Endothelial-like vascular progenitor cells (VPCs) are associated with the repair of ischemic tissue injury in several clinical settings. Because the endothelium is a principal target of radiation injury, VPCs may be important in limiting toxicity associated with radiotherapy (RT) in patients with cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS We studied 30… (More)
