Using a child's own stem cells to repair their heart looks promising
Date:1/27/2011

eart disease in children is different than heart disease in adults," said Kaushal. "Whereas adults might suffer heart failure from a stroke, heart failure in children occurs mostly because they are born with cardiomyopathy or other conditions in which the vessels of the heart chambers are small or in the wrong position causing pumping problems. The potential of cardiac stem cell therapy for children is truly exciting." said Kaushal.

Pending FDA approval, Kaushal hopes to begin clinical trials with children in the fall. The study was funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the Thoracic Surgical Foundation for Research and Education, the Children's Heart Foundation and the North Suburban Medical Research Junior Board.
