The Seattle Times reports that Dr. Charles Murry, UW professor of pathology, bioengineering and cardiology, and colleagues have successfully regenerated heart muscle in monkeys using human stem cells. This "proof-of-concept" research may one day be applied to humans whose hearts are damaged by heart attack and shows promising progress towards solving the "burgeoning public-health problem" of cardiac disease.
Stem cell therapy regenerates heart muscle in primates, finds a study led by Dr. Charles Murry, UW professor of pathology, bioengineering and cardiology. This approach, which uses heart cells created from human embryonic stem cells, should be feasible in humans and may be ready for clinical trials in humans within four years, researchers say. The study was published in the advanced online April 30, 2014 edition of Nature.
The heart cannot heal itself very well. However, Dr. Charles Murry, professor of Pathology, Bioengineering and Cardiology, is working on new ways to repair heart damage.
