The majority of patients survive an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Their outcome is negatively influenced by post-AMI events, such as loss of viable cardiomyocytes due to a post-AMI inflammatory response, eventually resulting in heart failure and/or death. Recent pre-clinical animal studies indicate that mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose… CONTINUE READING
