Stem Cell Therapy Effectively Treats Heart Attacks in Animals

Results from an animal study conducted at Johns Hopkins show that stem cell therapy can be used effectively to treat heart attacks, or myocardial infarcts, in pigs. Stem cells taken from another pig's bone marrow, when injected into the animal's damaged heart, were able to restore the heart's function to its original condition.

Method Developed to Replicate Stem Cells from the Heart

In human and animal studies, scientists at Johns Hopkins have developed a fast and safe method for collecting heart stem cells from remarkably small amounts of biopsied heart tissue (15 mg or less), and growing the cells in the lab to get more.

Stem Cell-Based Tissues Will Replace Metallic Prosthetics in Joint Surgery

A top National Institutes of Health researcher predicted that the metallic prosthetic devices currently being used to replace joints in the body destroyed by osteoarthritis and other degenerative diseases will one day be replaced by healthy bone and cartilage tissue.
