Clinical trial to use heart-derived stem cells to restore heart tissue, function

(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) In an article outlining the methodology for an upcoming clinical trial, a multi-center team of researchers discuss the therapeutic potential and logistics of using a cluster of cardiac cells, including stem cells, called 'cardiosphere-derived cells' (CDCs) for myocardial infarction (MI -- commonly referred to as heart attack).
