This study assessed the potential therapeutic efficacy of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) on infarcted hearts. Myocardial infarction was induced in rat hearts by occlusion of the left anterior descending artery (LAD). One week after LAD occlusion, the rats were divided into three groups and subjected to transplantation of ASCs or transplantation of cell culture medium (CCM) or remained untreated. During a 1-mo recovery period, magnetic resonance imaging showed that the ASC-treated hearts had… CONTINUE READING
