This work aimed to evaluate cardiac morphology/function and histological changes induced by bone marrow cells (BMCs) and cultured mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) injected at the myocardium of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) submitted to surgical coronary occlusion. Female syngeneic adult SHR, submitted (MI) or not (C) to coronary occlusion, were treated(More)
Stem cells are known by their capacity of self-renewal and differentiation into at least one specialized cell type. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were isolated initially from bone marrow but are now known to exist in any vascularized organ or tissue in adults. MSCs have a great therapeutic potential, due to their ability to migrate to sites of tissue injury(More)
