How does cardiac cell therapy work?

Transplanted cells are hypothesized to benefit the heart through direct and indirect pathways, accelerating the body’s natural healing process.

  • Direct Regeneration: Transplanted cells actively home to injury sites and differentiate into new functional tissue to augment organ function.
  • Indirect Regeneration: Transplanted cells secrete stimulatory cytokines to instigate an innate regenerative response from resident stem cells. Cytokines are cell signaling molecules that aid cell to cell communication in immune responses and stimulate the movement of healthy cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma.
