Phase-contrast photomicrographs of cultured late-outgrowth endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) showing (A) a colony-forming unit at 3 days, and a late-outgrowth colony at (B) 2 weeks and (C) 3 weeks. Confocal immunofluorescence images using conjugated fluorescein isothiocyanate (green) demonstrate that occasional cells were positive for (D) CD133 and that the majority of cells were positive for (E) von Willebrand factor, (G) CD34, and (H) CD146. Nuclear counterstaining was performed with 4,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (blue). (F and I) Isotype controls for anti-mouse and anti-rabbit secondary antibodies.Scale bars:50 m.

"2019 has been another great year for Pulmonary Circulation. We continue to see increasing numbers of articles submitted and now receive many good quality papers. We have been able to raise the bar for acceptance and we are pleased to say that it is now becoming more difficult to get published in Pulmonary Circulation!"

Our research platform is the world.

Through worldwide collaboration, we can begin to answer the question of a global disease.
