- Coronary atery disease (CAD) is recognized a major health threat worldwide, because of the need of immediate intervention and its high fatality. Currently the most dependable therapeutic approach is to use stent. However once vascular stent is implanted, vascular endothelial cell are often injured and smooth muscle cells (SMCs) are overgrowing toward the lumen of blood vessel. That causes thrombosis and neointimal hyperplasia. This phenomenon can be prevented if the stent surface was covered by endothelial cells (ECs). Our hypothesis is that a native extracellualr matrix (ECM) environment may provide a favorable microenvironment for ECs on the surface of stent. Using SMCs-derived matrix, ECs adhesion and proliferation were investigated.
