Mesenchymal Stem Cells Protect and Help Regenerate Cardiomyocytes
Let’s start by remembering that cardiomyocytes are just heart muscle tissue: A study in 2010 called, “Mesenchymal stem cells stimulate protective genetic reprogramming of injured cardiac ventricular myocytes” reveal new evidence that hMSCs elicit protective and reparative effects on cardiac tissue through molecular reprogramming of the cardiomyocytes. So the mesenchymal stem cells don’t just guide the repair of the heart, they also protect it. This means that by receiving an IV of stem cells you will regenerate it and protect it. This is profound for patients recovering from a heart attack or suffering from congestive heart failure.
