Update on Stem Cell Trials for Heart Scarring
I blogged recently about an upcoming study at the University of Rochester and gave a link to a newspaper article on it. The study will inject stem cells into patients who have had heart attacks and see if the scarring in their heart is reduced and the muscle tissue is healthier than in patients who do not receive stem cells. The stem cells used will be mesenchymal stem cells. There is now a press release on this, which gives some more detail for those who are interested.
