Basic research: Where do new endothelial cells come from in the injured heart?

04:39 EDT 11 Aug 2017 | Nature Publishing

Revascularization of ischaemia-injured myocardium is critical for functional recovery. A new study shows that endothelial cells of neovessels in the injured heart derive from pre-existing endothelial cells. This new finding focuses research on therapeutic strategies to direct the neovasculature to deliver oxygen and nutrients effectively to the ischaemic myocardium.
