Cardiac stem cell trial seeks to treat some heart attack patients
Date:9/30/2009

"This and future studies hope to answer some of these questions. For instance, how is the therapeutic benefit achieved? Do these cells differentiate into heart muscle cells? Do they minimize cell death after a heart attack or do they act by other mechanisms to improve the cardiac function?" said Yeghiazarians.

To seek answers to these questions, UCSF launched a Translational Cardiac Stem Cell Research Program in 2003. The program includes a multi-disciplinary team of practicing clinicians and basic and translational scientists with expertise in the various aspects of cardiac development and physiology. The program is dedicated to the study of adult stem cells and their role in treating diseases of the heart and circulatory system.

"The aim of our laboratory is to advance the basic science and to translate our findings from the lab bench to treat our patients at the bedside," said Yeghiazarians.
