Stem Cell Research Provides Medical Breakthrough to Repair Heart Cell Damage Created by a Heart Attack
Date:3/27/2008

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- In the medical community at large, there is no disputing the fact that heart attacks kill and destroy cells in the heart muscle. Multiple attempts by medical research scientists to figure out how to stimulate the heart to repair itself after an individual suffers a heart attack have repeatedly failed ... until now!

The Weil Institute of Critical Care Medicine, located in Rancho Mirage, California, is home to a brilliant group of medical research scientists who strive on a daily basis to provide cutting-edge breakthroughs to improve the success of preserving the life of those that suffer sudden cardiac arrest. This dynamic team, headed by world-renowned heart surgeon Dr. Wanchung Tang, sought to find the answer to rejuvenate the cells that were damaged and destroyed in the heart muscle from a heart attack. The beginning of this brilliant discovery started with the theory that by using bone marrow, the stem cells in the marrow would find their way to the heart muscle and begin to take over the function of the damaged and destroyed cells. These stem cells, in effect, would replace the dead cells and adapt themselves to become viable beating heart cells!

The Weil Institute medical investigation team has published its findings in various medical journals around the world. They have successfully been able to produce new, fully functional heart cells using the bone marrow donated from rats. The stem cells, once injected into the blood stream over a period of time, did indeed find their way to the heart and replaced the damaged cells that had been destroyed. Most importantly, these are the cells that had been destroyed due to a heart attack. New cells were effectively created and after painstaking monitoring over a period of time, it was duly found that the heart function of the subject improved significantly.
