Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells stimulate cardiac stem cell proliferation and differentiation.


RATIONALE The regenerative potential of the heart is insufficient to fully restore functioning myocardium after injury, motivating the quest for a cell-based replacement strategy. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have the capacity for cardiac repair that appears to exceed their capacity for differentiation into cardiac myocytes. OBJECTIVE… (More)
