Heart Function Restored with Human Stem Cells in Study with Monkeys
July 4, 2018
(UPI) – Heart function in monkeys has been restored with human stem cells, according to a study, showing promise the method will work in humans with heart failure. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin Medicine in Seattle found the hearts pumped vigorously again after embryonic stem cells formed new muscle in the organ. Their findings were published Monday in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
