Cell Therapies in Cardiac Repair

Cell therapy has been promised as a solution for cardiac disease for almost two decades, and now, a recent STEM CELLS review article from Ramana Vaka and Darryl R. Davis (University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Ottawa, Canada) summarizes recent progress in the field of paracrine and stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes for cardiac repair and regeneration. The authors explore the field's evolution and provide context for future advances in stem cell-mediated therapeutics.
