ASC and Heart Attacks

We've seen that adult stem cells (ASC, specifically from bone marrow) are already being used to treat heart disease (angina).

Now, there is a separate study using bone marrow cells in heart attack patients.

These are not the same study. The first study had 167 participants, who did not have angioplasty or stents. The second involved 31 patients who had received angioplasty and stents.
