Extracellular Vesicles and Therapy for Pulmonary Hypertension

Add to Calendar ▼

Extracellular vesicles from mice with monocrotaline induced pulmonary hypertension can induce pulmonary hypertension in normal irradiated mice and the relevant cellular inducers are endothelial progenitors. Vesicles from mesenchymal stem cells can reverse the induced pulmonary hypertension and low dose irradiation to deplete endothelial progenitors also reverses pulmonary hypertension in these models.
