How can stem cell technology help cure heart diseases?
For e.g. Storing of cord blood so that new blood cells can be formed
Re: How can stem cell technology help cure heart diseases?
There has been some research on mesenchymal stem cells, which can form connective tissues. Using serum factors or some protein factors, mesenchymal stem cells intrinsic to a person can be induced to renew and proliferate, and differentiate into heart muscle cells to repair the heart. This becomes useful when it comes to coronary heart disease.
