More hope for people with heart failure

Sharing is Caring

In a recent study published in the American Heart Association journal, Circulation Research, researchers were able to activate stem cells in a heart failure patient’s heart using gene therapy that resulted in improving their symptoms, heart function, and their quality of life. The study showed that the researchers were able to activate stem cells almost like a “homing signal”, that would go to the injured tissue and repair it.

Though this treatment is not available to the public yet, the researchers will be conducting a larger trial, and there is hope that it will be available in the near future. Read more about the study, Stem cell “homing” signal may help treat heart failure patients.
