The Impact of a Single Apheretic Procedure on Endothelial Function Assessed by Peripheral Arterial Tonometry and Endothelial Progenitor Cells


Introduction: Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) are involved in vascular repair and proliferation, contributing to the long-term outcomes of apheretic treatment. Aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between endothelial function, assessed by levels of bone marrow-derived progenitor cells and endothelial response to hyperaemia, and clinical… (More)
