Reduced endothelial progenitor cell-colony forming units (EPC-CFU) in children with active systematic vasculitis. a Representative image of EPC-colony forming unit (EPC-CFU from a healthy control child). b Comparison of EPC-CFU in children with active and inactive systematic vasculitis and child healthy controls. EPC-colony forming EPC-CFUs were reduced in 15 children with active disease compared to healthy control children but not in five children with inactive disease compared to healthy child controls (p = 0.3). The Kruskal-Wallis test was used to examine overall differences between the study groups followed by the Mann–Whitney U test. P values < 0.05 were considered significant
