Beneficial effects of statin treatment after myocardial infarction: Is progenitor cell mobilization the missing link?

Abstract:

It is widely accepted that statin treatment improves survival in patients with myocardial infarction. Evidence also suggests that aggressive statin treatment is superior than standard dose during the post-infarction period. However, the exact mechanisms are still not well understood. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) play a key role in vascular homeostasis, since they contribute to the repair of damaged endothelium post-myocardial infarction, while they induce neoangiogenesis. Recent evidenc...
