Abstract

We showed that ACS patients with MDE have a reduced number of circulating CD34CD133KDR cells compared with ACS patients without MDE, suggesting that the presence of MDE reduces the response of bone marrow to acute ischemic events. Considering the reparative role of EPCs in ACS patients, we propose that patients with MDE might be protected less than patients without MDE.
