Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) mobilize from the bone marrow in response to tissue injury and participate in vascular repair. However, there is limited data about the homing mechanisms of EPCs to vascular injury sites. Recently animal experiments indicated that platelets play a role in recruitment of EPCs to injury sites. However, data on the possible interaction between platelets and EPCs within the human system are limited. We, therefore, examined in-vitro human platelet-EPC interaction… CONTINUE READING
