The effect of CD34+ cell telomere length and hTERT expression on the outcome of autologous CD34+ cell transplantation in patients with chronic heart failure.

Abstract

Age-related telomere attrition in stem/progenitor cells may diminish their functional capacity and thereby impair the outcome of cell-based therapies. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of CD34+ cell telomere length and hTERT expression on the clinical outcome of autologous CD34+ cell transplantation. We studied 43 patients with… (More)
