Stem cell research and tissue engineering have become leading fields in basic research worldwide. Especially in cardiovascular medicine, initial reports on the potential of using stem cells to recover cardiac function and replace organ subunits such as heart valves seemed to offer the promise of widespread clinical use in the near future. However, the broad application of this new therapy failed due to safety and efficacy concerns. Due in part to the initial reports, major basic research… CONTINUE READING
