OBJECTIVES Transplantation of fetal cardiomyocytes improves function of infarcted myocardium but raises availability, immunologic, and ethical issues that justify the investigation of alternate cell types, among which skeletal myoblasts are attractive candidates. METHODS Myocardial infarction was created in rats by means of coronary artery ligation. One week later, the animals were reoperated on and intramyocardially injected with culture growth medium alone (controls, n = 15), fetal… CONTINUE READING
