Table 3 Number of CECs and EPCs before and after iloprost infusion

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

  CECs/mmc EPCs/mmc
Data before iloprost infusion 661 ± 404 152 ± 93
Data 72 h after one day iloprost therapy 745 ± 453 186 ± 104
Data 72 h after five days iloprost therapy 775 ± 382 206 ± 139¥
  1. * P-value 0.368 vs cells number before iloprost infusion
  2. # P-value 0.004
  3. P-value 0.015
  4. ¥ P- value 0.014
  5. CECs, circulating endothelial cells; EPCs, endothelial progenitor cells.
