Neysan Rafat What Do We Know About the Potential of Endothelial Cells in Treating Acute Lung Injury?
A positive outcome of an acute lung injury, a by-product of sepsis, is closely linked to a repair process in which endothelial progenitor cells are involved. These cells derive from the bone marrow and circulate in the blood stream. In the past ten years a lot was published on endothelial regeneration. The paper presented in this video aims at bringing together this research to create an overview of what has been achieved already, how the findings contrast and amend each other and what is still unknown and worth tackling. NEYSAN RAFAT explains that the different studies such as animal studies, clinical studies and in-vitro studies can be compared even though there are two methods used which often come to contrasting results. Based on this gathered knowledge future ways of therapy using endothelial regeneration can be examined.
