Researchers inch closer to regenerating the heart wall using stem cells

The group's method of generating epicardium cells – cells that cover the external surface of a human heart – could be useful in clinical applications, for patients who suffer a heart attack

Researchers inch closer to regenerating the heart wall using stem cellsA process using human stem cells can generate the cells that cover the external surface of a human heart – epicardium cells – according to a multidisciplinary team of researchers. “In 2012, we discovered that if we treated human stem cells with chemicals that sequentially activate and inhibit Wnt signaling pathway, they become myocardium muscle […]
