Toward cell therapy for vascular calcification: osteoclast-mediated demineralization of calcified elastin.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Elastin-oriented vascular calcification is a clinically significant feature, which involves formation of ectopic bone-like structures. Taking advantage of the similarities between arterial calcification and bone regulation, our hypothesis was that therapeutic approaches for limitation of vascular calcification could be developed using site… (More)
