endothelial progenitor cells is affected by numerous factors. A decreased number and function of endothelial progenitor cells was observed in patients suffering from different disorders. The reason for decreased levels of endothelial progenitor cells and the clinical effect still remains unclear. Experimental therapy of a deficit of endothelial progenitor cells currently is limited to infusion of endothelial progenitor cells or stem cells. Such infusions are complex and the therapeutic success at present is limited. The adenosine level especially in the blood plasma can affect the level of endothelial progenitor cells. Adenosine
level affecting-compounds can increase the viability of endothelial progenitor cells. It is of particular therapeutic value that adenosine level affecting-compounds can induce an increase of the level of endothelial progenitor cells and at the same time can reduce the amount of apoptotic endothelial progenitor cells.
The present invention discloses the use of adenosine level affecting-compounds e.g. dipyridamole, adenosine and its analogues (alone or in combination with other groups of compounds) for the t reatment or diagnosis of clinical conditions resulting from a deficit of endothelial progenitor cells, especially coronary heart disease.

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.
Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...
Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
