Stem Cell Study Shows Promising Results Against Heart Failure
Date:5/11/2012

iling in terms of how effective the medications are, he added.

"We do need a new way of treating heart failure if we want more improvement," said Jauhar, who added that it is too early to say whether the new stem cell therapy will fill that role. "It shows some improvement in pumping parameters of the heart, but that doesn't mean you will live longer," he said.

This is a small study that suggests the treatment is safe, said Dr. Kirk Garrett, clinical director of interventional cardiovascular research at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "The approach is different in that most other groups zero in on one gene or cell type, and try to make it do the work," he said, while the new treatment involves both stem cells and immune cells that are primed to do the job.

Because this study was presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
