Stem Cell-Derived Heart Muscle Transplanted Into Human for First Time: Researchers

In a first-of-its-kind procedure, a team of Japanese researchers announced this week that they had successfully transplanted stem cell-derived cardiac muscle cells into a human patient. The announcement, from a team based in Osaka University, sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to grow cardiac tissue, and then … Continue reading Stem Cell-Derived Heart Muscle Transplanted Into Human for First Time: Researchers
