Recorded during the 5th Annual International Neonatal and Childhood Pulmonary Vascular Disease Conference, Dr. Kurt Stenmark presents on the potential contribution of inflammatory and progenitor cells to abnormal vascular remodeling. He reviews the mechanisms leading to inflammation/progenitor cell recruitment, retention and activation, including epigenetic alterations in control of protein expression, and how these factors may lead to alternative therapeutic strategies in pulmonary hypertension.
