A breakthrough in the treatment of heart disease causes stem cell regeneration of heart cells using cells from the patients own heart. Dr. Eduardo Marban, Director of Cedars Sinai Heart Institute, coaxed tissue from a patients own heart, and discovered the stem cells manufactured hundreds of healthy, new heart cells.
Ken Milles, stem cell test patient, says it was like receiving a “magic pill” that has given him a stronger heart beat and he feels great. Dr. Marban says studies show scarring on Milles’ heart tissue cleared by 50% and his heart looks normal again. Damaged muscle was replaced by new, healthy heart tissue.
