Abstract

Endothelial Function Measurement: It is considered the most accurate non-invasive procedure to detect and follow vascularreactivity. Endothelial function measurement can detect early atherosclerosis and pre-clinical coronary vascular disease, cerebral and peripheral vascular disease. Dozens of studies have shown that the worse the endothelial dysfunction the worse the clinical prognosis of patients with cardiovascular risk factors.
Endothelial Progenitor Stem Cells: These are grown in culture from the peripheral blood are presented as endothelial progenitor cells-colony forming units (EPC-CFU). There is an inverse correlation between EPC-CFUs number and cardiovascular risk factors. The higher the Framingham score the worse the ability to build colonies of endothelial progenitor stem cells, and the
worse the prognosis.
Combining the Endothelial Function Assay with the EPC-CFU Assay: A positive correlation was found between endothelial function and the ability to create EPC-CFUs. Combining these 2 modalities (the clinical assay and the stem cells assay) will enable to have a better sensitivity and specificity for diagnosing coronary artery disease in a pre-clinical stage. Our combined
approach does not replace the traditional risk factors’ assessment; still we suggest a more individualized, patient oriented approach that will add to the present risk assessment. We suggest a “personalized medicine approach” in cardiovascular medicine using advanced ultra sound and stem cells’ techniques.
