‘Beating Heart’ Patch Offers New Hope for Desperately Ill Patients – NBCNews.com

By daniellenierenberg

Let our news meet your inbox. From clot-busting drugs to bypass surgery, cardiologists have many options for treating the 700,000-plus Americans who suffer a heart attack each year. But treatment options remain limited for the 5.7 million or so Americans who suffer from heart failure, an often debilitating condition in which damage to the heart (often resulting from a heart attack) compromises its ability to pump blood.

Study: Cardiac Stem Cell Injections Reverse Effects of Aging – Study Finds

By NEVAGiles23

LOS ANGELES In the fight against cardiovascular disease, a new super-weapon is now even closer to deployment and its capabilities are turning out to be beyond expectations. One of the most notorious killers facing humanity, cardiovascular disease, is responsible for about about 1 in every 3 deaths in the U.S., according to the American Heart Association. A new study aimed at combating the disease finds that stem cells, the controversial darlings of modern biomedical research, are not only showing promise in treating heart failure, but in rats are actually reversing problems associated with old age.

The unexpected role of a well-known gene in creating blood – Medical Xpress

The early heart tube of a chick embryo: cardiac and endothelial cells are made visible by specifically expressing fluorescent proteins under the control of the Nkx2.5 (green) and Isl1 (red) cardiovascular genes. Credit: Weizmann Institute of Science One of the first organ systems to form and function in the embryo is the cardiovascular system: in fact, this developmental process starts so early that scientists still have many unresolved questions on the origin of the primitive heart and blood vessels. How do the first cells the progenitors that are destined to become part of this system participate in shaping the developed cardiovascular system

Stem cell therapy for heart failure gets a gold-standard trial – Salon

By daniellenierenberg

In the days after a heart attack, surviving patients and their loved ones can breathe a sigh of relief that the immediate danger is over but the scar tissue that forms during the long healing process can inflict lasting damage. Too often it restricts the hearts ability to fill properly between beats, disrupting rhythm and ultimately leading to heart failure. Yet a new possible treatment may help to revitalize an injured ticker
