Utilizing autologous [the patient’s own]stem cells to regenerate heart muscle, scientists at the Novant Health Group have successfully treated patients that suffered from severe heart attacks; potentially limiting the long term loss of tissue and preserving heart function for victims. The patient’s own mesenchymal stem cells [the same type as dental stem cells] are harvested and then implanted back into the damaged area, where they recruit surrounding cells to aid in the repair process.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, with 715,000 Americans suffering from a heart attack each year. Successful development of Novant’s stem cell treatment would limit the deleterious effects of a heart attack as well as reduce the number of deaths in patients that suffer from heart disease.
Advances in stem cell based regenerative treatments are creating more effective treatment options for patients suffering from a wide variety of disease, trauma and injury. To learn more about stem cells, and how families can bank their own valuable stem cells by recovering the very powerful dental pulp stem cells during routine dental procedures; such as wisdom teeth extractions or the during the loss of baby teeth, visit www.StemSave.com or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
