Xenotransplantation of human unrestricted somatic stem cells in a pig model of acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Stem cell therapy may help restore cardiac function after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but the optimal therapeutic cell type has not been identified. METHODS We examined the effects of CD34-/CD45- human unrestricted somatic stem cells (USSCs) in pigs (n = 30) with an AMI created by a 90-min occlusion of the left anterior descending… (More)
