Transplanted Embryonic Stem Cells Repair Hearts
This has been a week of good news from researchers working with stem cells. The following is from "Science Daily." Particularly encouraging is the fact that this advance involved embryonic stem cells, which, according to some opponents of the research, have never been shown to mend or cure anything. Perhaps this breakthrough, and others like it, will begin to prove the true potential of these cells.
MADISON, Wis., Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Working with heart attack-stricken mice, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists has shown embryonic stem cells can help heal heart tissue.
A research team led by UW-Madison stem cell researcher Timothy Kamp reports embryonic stem cells transplanted into mouse hearts damaged by experimentally induced heart attacks, morph into functional forms of the major types of cells composing the healthy heart.
The scientists say if perfected, such therapy could provide a practical, less-invasive alternative to current therapies such as surgery and improve the quality of life for many patients.
