Study: Umbilical cord holds key to heart repair

from QMI Agency via The Toronto Sun

New U.K. research out of the University of Bristol suggests stem cells from human umbilical cords could be used to treat heart attack victims. "Our research suggests that in the future, stem cells derived from cord blood bank facilities might be used for repair after a heart attack," said lead author Raimondo Ascione. Following a heart attack, doctors may use a patient's own stem cells to help repair the damaged heart muscle. But that technique is limited because aging and other risk factors can make the patient's cells non-functional. more
