Stem Cell Treatment May Reverse Heart Attack Damage

August 7, 2019

(UPI) – Surviving a heart attack is good, but the resulting damage can lead to potentially deadly organ damage. While the heart does not regenerate tissue on its own, researchers may have a way of repairing damage with new tissue. Researchers have developed a method of growing tissue outside the body using stem cell[s] that can repair the harm caused by a heart attack, according to research published Monday in the journal Circulation.
