Table 2 Comparison of CECs and EPCs number between patients with and without skin ulcers

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

  Skin ulcers - SSc patients (33) Skin ulcers + SSc patients (17) P value
CECs/mmc 600 ± 401 968 ± 553 0.05
EPCs/mms 142 ± 93 158 ± 92 0.597
  1. CECs, circulating endothelial cells; EPCs, endothelial progenitor cells; SSc, progressive systemic sclerosis.
