Injection of cardiac stem cells may serve as a therapeutic to reverse the heart damage caused by Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Stem cells have been known to rejuvenate dying tissue or organs, and they’ve already been used to re-grow tissue in hearts. In one of our previous blogs, we have mentioned possible roles of stem cells in cardiac regeneration. Recently, researchers at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute have found that delivering cardiac stem cells into impaired hearts may repair the heart damage caused by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), leading to longer life expectancy in patients.[1]
