Utah Researchers Take Giant Step Forward in Stem Cell Research

For years, scientists have contemplated the ability of stem cells and umbilical cord blood to cure heart disease in both adults and children. Now, researchers at the University of Utah will be among the first in the country to test these theories by injecting patients’ own stem cells into their hearts to treat heart failure. Similar procedures in other nations have shown that patients tend to experience a 20 to 100 percent improvement in heart functionality, a statistic that reveals the powerful healing capabilities of stem cells.
