Vasculogenic Stem Cell Mobilization from Bone Marrow in Patients with Late Effect Radiation Injury Undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: 2 ATA vs 2.5 ATA

Hyperoxic stimulation of Autologous Vasculogenic Stem Cell Mobilization (or stem/progenitor cells) from a patient’s bone marrow has been shown to play a pivotal role in resulting angiogenesis and wound healing. This study aims to quantitatively measure these vasculogenic stem cells released from the patient’s own bone marrow into the blood at 2 ATA versus 2.5 ATA in order to determine if there is any measurable benefit in hyperbaric oxygen treatment at 2.5 ATA over 2 ATA.
