British trial will test stem cells capacity to repair heart muscle

Stem cells to repair damaged heart muscle First ever-surgical trial gets the go-ahead 22 June 2007 In the first trial of its kind in the world, 60 patients who have recently suffered a major heart attack will be injected with selected stem cells from their own bone marrow during routine coronary bypass surgery. The Bristol trial will test whether the stem cells will repair heart muscle cells damaged by the heart attack, by preventing late scar formation and hence impaired heart contraction. .........
