Housecall For Health: Skin Cells Repair Heart
A new experiment finds skin cells could be used to repair the body’s most important muscle.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s edition of Housecall For Health:
In the first procedure of its kind, scientists used skin cells to repair a damaged heart. Researchers out of Israel harvested skin cells from humans suffering heart failure. The cells were scientifically altered into heart muscle cells and inserted into the hearts of rats, where they successfully integrated with the existing tissue. Scientists say once the process is perfected, it could help eliminate the painful process of transplant rejection.
