Table 1 Comparison of CECs and EPCs number between patients affected by SSc and healthy controls

From: Gene expression profiling in circulating endothelial cells from systemic sclerosis patients shows an altered control of apoptosis and angiogenesis that is modified by iloprost infusion

  SSc patients (50) Healthy controls (50) P value
CECs/mmc 689 ± 464 22 ± 17 < 0,0001
EPCs/mms 146 ± 92 1 ± 1 < 0,0001
  1. CECs, circulating endothelial cells; EPCs, endothelial progenitor cells; SSc, progressive systemic sclerosis.
