BACKGROUND Cell transplantation is a promising strategy to treat end-stage heart failure. At present, a popular method to deliver cells into the heart is direct intramuscular injection. This method, however, may not be efficient in spreading cells globally into the myocardium. We have developed a novel method for cell transplantation using intracoronary infusion. METHODS AND RESULTS An L6 rat skeletal muscle cell line expressing ss-galactosidase (ss-gal) was generated by gene transfection and… CONTINUE READING
