Three Heart Disease Patients Improve After Adult Stem Cell Treatment

Stem Cell Research Trial Results for Heart Disease Patients
Dr. Amit Patel of the University of Utah is reporting that 3 out of 3 heart disease patients have improved in the initial stages of his stem cell research trial in which the cardiomyopathy patients had their own Adult Stem Cells injected back into their heart in […]

A Richmond, Utah dog struggling for mobility is getting a new leash on life, courtesy of a new stem cell treatment for canines.
It’s not embryonic cells, but the dog’s own that are used in the treatment. North Logan vet Dr. James Israelsen of the Mountain View Veterinary Health Clinic performed the procedure on “Coty.”
Coty with Miller’s wife, Diane Bush.

“We have to harvest some fat from them to isolate the stem cells. And in her case, she’s a thin dog, so we actually harvested a little bit of abdominal fat just from the front of her

Aging heart cells rejuvenated by modified stem cells

Damaged and aged heart tissue of older heart failure External link patients was rejuvenated by stem cells modified by scientists, according to research presented at the American Heart Association’s Basic Cardiovascular Sciences 2012 Scientific Sessions.
The study is simultaneously published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

The research could one day lead to new treatments for heart failure patients, researchers said.

“Since patients with heart failure are normally elderly, their cardiac stem cells aren’t very healthy,” said Sadia Mohsin, Ph.D., one of the study authors and a post-doctoral research scholar at San Diego State University’s Heart Institute
