ASC and Heart Repair

Several new developments since my last summary.
  1. Treatment for heart attacks in human trials
  2. Another form in animal trials
  3. Now, a technique for growing heart tissue, using mouse cells
From the article:
"The researchers plan to test their model using non-embryonic stem cells... If they could use a patient's own cells, the patch would also evade an immune system reaction."
