Delayed diabetic wound healing is, in part, the result of inadequate endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) proliferation, mobilization, and trafficking. Recently, we developed a serum-free functional culture system called the quality and quantity culture (QQc) system that enhances the number and vasculogenic potential of EPCs. We hypothesize that QQc… CONTINUE READING
