Resumo

Objective To provide a comprehensive assessment of the relationship of birth weight with both endothelial progenitor cell function and angiogenic factors in children. Study design Anthropometric measures, biochemical profile, endothelial progenitor cell number, endothelial progenitor cell colony-forming units, vascular endothelial growth factor-A, and nitric oxide plasma levels of 58 children aged 7-11 years were determined. Results A positive correlation was observed between birth weight and circulating endothelial progenitor cell number (r = 0.461; P= .001), endothelial progenitor cell colony-forming units (r = 0.512: P < .001), vascular endothelial growth factor-A (r= 0.407; P = .002), and nitric oxide (r = 0.547: P < .001) levels, whereas the adjustment for prematurity, family history of cardiovascular disease, and systolic blood pressure levels did not modify these associations. Conclusion Low birth weight was associated with a decrease in the circulating/functional capacity of endothelial progenitor cells among healthy children, independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. This detrimental impact was accompanied by lower circulating levels of angiogenic factors. (AU)
