endothelial progenitor cells

endothelial progenitor cells

Cells derived from the bone marrow that are thought to maintain the integrity of the endothelium of blood vessels. Low levels of these cells in the circulating blood of patients with coronary artery disease has been found to be a marker for the probability of heart attacks and other cardiovascular events and cardiovascular deaths
