Temporal profiles of monocytes and myocytes. The wall thickness of left ventricle and observed a monotone decrease of wall thickness at day 1, 3, 5, 7 post-MI, suggesting the same trend of myocytes density based on the experimental results [18]. Temporal profiles of myocytes and the monotone progression trend are shown in Figure 2(A). We established the temporal profiles of monocytes based on our own experimental measurement on total macrophage density and the control value of macrophage density in health adult mice is 5 × 103cells/ml. Temporal profiles of monocytes are shown in Figure 2(B). The estimation of monocytes for each day are shown in Figure 2(C).
