Imaging survival and function of transplanted cardiac resident stem cells.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The goal of this study is to characterize resident cardiac stem cells (CSCs) and investigate their therapeutic efficacy in myocardial infarction by molecular imaging methods. BACKGROUND CSCs have been isolated and characterized in vitro. These cells offer a provocative method to regenerate the damaged myocardium. However, the survival kinetics… (More)
