A growing body of evidence suggests that circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) participate in vascular healing and remodeling under physiological and pathological conditions (1, 2). It is believed that the majority of EPCs originate in the bone marrow (BM). EPCs are mobilized into systemic circulation in response to specific stimuli (Mobilization) and recruited at the site of vascular repair or neovascularization (Homing), where they differentiate into endothelial-like cells… CONTINUE READING
