We had a little moment. “But obviously I never we...
New technique helps injured hearts regenerate via stem cells

New technique helps injured hearts regenerate via stem cells

Health
April 23 (UPI) -- Engineers have developed a new way to help injured hearts regenerate using cells derived from human stem cells, potentially leading to better treatments for cardiac medical conditions.Researchers at the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science found a way to treat the heart without implanting the cells, because in the past they didn't work well with the heart and can cause abnormal heart rhythm. Instead they applied extracellular vesicles -- a small structure within a cell -- secreted by cardiomyocytes, which make up the cardiac muscle cells.Their findings were published Monday in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering."We reasoned that the cardiomyocytes would be the best source of molecules driving the recovery of injured heart, as it is well known that the...
