Throughout the subepithelial zone and proper mucous plate (PMP) there was an increased vessel formation (microvasculature), most vessels had a dilated lumen, thickened wall with distended nuclei of endotheliocytes, some of which had sludge phenomenon of red blood cells.
Oxidative stress also plays a primary part in the pathogenic mechanism of endothelial damage, generally owing to the attenuated availability of NO.[55] Furthermore, H[sub]2O[sub]2 can induce oxidative stress to weaken the protective condition of EPCs.[36] Amassing reactive oxygen species (ROS) can do some harm in the repair of impaired endotheliocytes, but the potential theory is undiscovered.
In experimental models of hypercholesterolemia in pigs, it was found that statins have a positive effect on the function of endotheliocytes and improve the myocardial perfusion.
The cells were categorized into neutrophils, macrophages, mastcells, fibroblasts, and capillary endotheliocytes according to their morphological features (shape of the cell, shape of the nucleus, and cytoplasm/nucleus ratio) as described previously [33].
Microscopically, these tumors contain branching vascular channels that are lined with endotheliocytes and interspersed by uniformly round or ovoid glomus cells.
Inhibiting apoptosis in both cardiomyocytes and endotheliocytes might reduce the likelihood of reinfarction at the intracellular level.

It is characterized by endothelial dysfunction and impaired paracrine interaction between activated stellate hepatocytes and sinusoidal endotheliocytes, sinusoidal remodeling and capillarization, as well as development of the collateral microcirculation [10].
It was also shown that these cells were capable of differentiating quickly into osteoblasts and endotheliocytes and, then, able to produce bone tissue along the implant surfaces [58].
Structurally the intimal layer of CCA, as in the other carotid vessels (ICA and ECA), showed a very thin pattern and appeared formed by endotheliocytes and internal elastic lamina (Figs.
When DPSCs differentiated into osteogenic progenitors, some of the cells exhibit EC-like phenotypes and, therefore, gave rise to both osteoblasts and endotheliocytes [121].
