Patch Helps Heart Grow New Cells
Posted by Kassi42 in health 10 years ago
A special patch placed on a damaged area of the heart regenerates cardiac cells after heart attack and improves heart function, a new study finds.  
 
Success with the patch in rats may lead the way to new methods of repairing damaged human hearts and possibly spare some patients the need for a heart transplant, according to researchers reporting in the July 15 online edition of Nature Medicine.
