tissue. Additionally, the stem cell transplantation restarted cell cycle activity and halved the fibrosis that had been developing after the initial damage. Stem cell therapy also increased stamina and removed fluid buildup in the body, so characteristic in heart failure.

The researchers say their findings show that stem cells can achieve functional repair in non-ischemic (cases other than blood-flow blockages) genetic cardiomyopathy. Further testing is underway.

Others members of the multidisciplinary team are: Timothy Nelson, M.D., Ph.D.; Ruben Crespo-Diaz; Carmen Perez-Terzic, M.D., Ph.D.; Xiao-Ke Liu, M.D., Ph.D.; and Atta Behfar, M.D., Ph.D., of Mayo Clinic; Takashi Miki, M.D., Chiba University, Japan; and Susumu Seino, M.D., Kobe University, Japan.

The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, the Marriott Foundation, the Ted Nash Long Life Foundation, the Ralph Wilson Medical Research Foundation, and the Japanese Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, Culture and Technology.
