Combining erythropoietin infusion with intramyocardial delivery of bone marrow cells is more effective for cardiac repair.

Abstract

We postulated that combining erythropoietin (EPO) infusion with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) delivery may give better prognosis in a rat infarcted heart. Acute myocardial infarction (MI) model was developed by coronary artery ligation. Animals were grouped (n=18) to receive intramyocardial injection of 30 microl saline solution without cells… (More)
