BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) with colony-forming capacity and compare them with the monocytic-macrophage lineage. METHODS Forty-two healthy donors were analyzed. EPC were cultured with VEGF and b-FGF. Sequential studies were performed on days +7 (colonies) +21 and +35. Monocytic cells were cultured using the same conditions as EPC until day +21 or alternatively by adding IGF. RESULTS The number of EPC colonies was higher in… CONTINUE READING
