OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to guide bone marrow-derived human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) into a cardiac progenitor phenotype and assess therapeutic benefit in chronic myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND Adult stem cells, delivered in their naïve state, demonstrate a limited benefit in patients with ischemic heart disease. Pre-emptive lineage(More)
BACKGROUND With the recent growth of interest in cell-based therapies and radiolabeled cell products, there is a need to develop more robust cell labeling and imaging methods for in vivo tracking of living cells. This study describes evaluation of a novel cell labeling approach with the positron emission tomography (PET) isotope (89)Zr (T 1/2 = 78.4 h).(More)
