This part of the project aims to describe changes in markers of vascular competence (Endothelial Microparticles Platelet (EMP), Circulating endothelial cells (CEC) and Circulating endothelial progenitors (EPC)) at different ages of lifespan both in physiological state and in response to hypoxia-induced vascular stress.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Impact du Vieillissement (VI) Sur le Compartiment Circulant et Sur la Mobilisation (MO) Des progéniteurs endothéliaux (PE) Par ischémie Locale (IL) : étude Pilote

Study Population
healthy volunteers

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Healthy volunteers of 20-30 and 60-70 years old
  • Non smokers male
  • Biological test in normal values : lipids, glucose, TGO, TGT, alkaline phosphatases, gamma-GT, bilirubin, creatinine, ionogram, Ca++, albumin, proteins, WBC, platelets count, coagulation tests (APTT, PT, Fibrinogen).
  • Negative HIV1 and 2, HBV (Hbs antigen) and HCV serology.
  • Normal ECG 12 derivations, arterial pressure and cardiac frequency.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Evaluative disease in the past 10 days
  • Hemorrhagic disorders
  • Treatments with antiplatelets agents, oral or injectable anticoagulant
  • Statins, glitazones, EPO, G-CSF
  • Frequent faintness
  • Blood donation in the 3 months preceding the study
  • People in period of exclusion on the National File of the people who lend themselves to biomedical research
  • Refusal or linguistic or psychic incapacity to sign the enlightened consent
  • Biological parameters apart from the usual values of the healthy subject (Hb<10 g/dL, TGO/TGT > 2 times higher limit of normal values)
  • Prone not being able to subject to the constraints protocol (for example, not cooperating, incompetent to go to the visits of follow-up and probably incompetent to finish the study).
