BACKGROUND Vascular interventions, such as percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), lead to endothelial damage and cause an inflammatory response. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) have been shown to have a prominent role in re-endothelialization and repair following vascular injury. Studies have implicated a role for the chemokine, stromal-cell-derived factor-1 alpha (SDF1-alpha) in the recruitment of circulating EPCs to sites of vascular injury. However, the relationship between the… CONTINUE READING
