New Mapping Study in the Mouse Heart Finds No Evidence of Cardiac Stem Cells or Proliferative Cardiomyocytes

New results do not support the presence of quiescent cardiac stem cells, transdifferentiation into cardiomyocytes, or cardiomyocyte proliferation post-injury

Novel Reprogramming Approach for Cardiosphere-based Myocardial Regeneration

A new study in a myocardial infarction mouse model demonstrates how a novel reprogramming approach may permit enhanced cardiosphere-based myocardial regeneration

Age-Dependency in Cardiac Progenitor Cell Therapy

Researchers underline the importance of donor age in human cardiac progenitor cell therapy in a mouse model

New Strategy for Enhanced Stem Cell-based Cardiac Repair

A new study suggests that overexpression of SDF1α leads to enhanced stem cell-based cardiac repair of the infarcted heart

Boosting Stem Cell Survival to Enhance Cardiac Therapy

Researchers describe a means to enhance cardiac stem cell survival after transplantation in the hope of enhancing the treatment of myocardial infarction

Producing Praiseworthy Progenitors with Protein!

An improved direct reprogramming strategy using protein transduction enhances the production of cardiac progenitor cells from fibroblasts

Towards Effective Stem Cell Treatment of Ischemia

Purified multipotent cardiovascular progenitors promotes recovery after ischemia, and uncover an miRNA mediated pathway mediating their effect.

The Touchy-Feely Side of Cardiac Cell Therapy

Researchers highlight the importance of cell-to-cell contact in cardiosphere‐derived cell-mediated induction of proliferation in cardiomyocytes. Herein we review the findings and discuss the ramifications.

Improving Cardiac Cell Production through Enhancing Early Mesoderm Formation

Researchers find that Insulin-like growth factor/Insulin-mediated induction of mesodermal differentiation aids the production of cardiac progenitor cells from embryonic stem cells towards a strategy to boost cardiac cell production.


Stromal Progenitor Ligands Promote Cardiac Stem-Progenitor Grafts

Mesenchymal stem cell released factors are shown to potentiate the growth and survival of cardiac stem cells allowing for greater engraftment in the ischaemic mouse heart.
