New Stem Cell Treatments Holds Hope for Heart Attack Victims

The cardio-thoracic department of Chennai-based Sri Ramachandra University and Dr. Naresh Trehan's center in New Delhi have joined forces to conduct stem cell research for heart attack victims undergoing a by-pass surgery. The stem cell therapy will involve the patients receiving stem cell shots during the operation. This stem cell research will start after the department of biotechnology gives its nod for the pilot project. Scientists hope this stem cell treatment will enrich the heart cells and repair damages caused due to cardiac arrest. Dr. Amit N Patel, Director of Cardiac Stem Cell Therapies at the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine, says injection of stem cells improve the function of muscles and blood vessels allowing patients to lead a near-normal life.
