FREEPORT, The Bahamas (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
CEO Matt Feshbach of Okyanos Heart Institute, which brings a new standard of care and better quality of life to patients with chronic coronary artery disease using cardiac stem cell therapy, announces an educational resource center launch for healthcare professionals on The American Journal of Cardiology (AJC) website. The resource center provides current research in the field of stem cell therapy for heart disease by a variety of leading research institutions, thought leader comments, current publications in the field, and an interactive question and answer section led by Howard Walpole, MD, MBA, FACC, FACAI, and Chief Medical Officer of Okyanos. The resource center launches the first week in March and can be found at http://www.ajconline.org/.
“I believe we have created a much needed go-to resource that will be of great use to cardiologists and other healthcare providers,” said Brian Jenkins, Executive Multimedia Editor of Elsevier Multimedia Publishing in New York, NY, which runs the site for the AJC. “The stem cell resource center provides a wealth of information on a burgeoning area in cardiology. Readers will find multiple educational opportunities: a thought leader roundtable video that allows you to select questions and get answers on topics of greatest interest; open access article content; news feeds on stem cell therapy; and the ability to submit questions to a leading expert, Dr. Walpole.”
“The AJC wanted to do this resource center because cell therapy is an entirely new approach to treating serious cardiac diseases for which we have no good treatment in their advanced stages,” said Vincent Friedewald, MD, FACC, an Associate Editor of the AJC, as well as Clinical Professor of Medicine at University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, TX, and Adjunct Senior Research Professor at
