Stem cells derived from heart failure patients’ own bone marrow and injected into their hearts improved the function of the left ventricle, the heart’s pumping chamber. Mayo Clinic researchers also found that certain types of the stem cells were associated with the largest improvement and needs further study.
These results were presented today at the 2012 American College of Cardiology Meeting in Chicago. They will also be published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Soundbites from Mayo Clinic cardiologist, Dr. Robert Simari, and Dr. Emerson Perin of the Texas Heart Institute, as well as broll of Dr. Perin's news conference at ACC are in the downloads above
