Role of Stem Cells in Heart Regeneration

Pp. 102-115 (14)

Jianhua Xiong


Over the past few years, stem cell-based therapeutics has emerged as a promising strategy for many severe human diseases. The recent studies on stem cells in heart regeneration have stimulated discoveries directed towards potential clinical applications. A series of recent advances in signaling pathway and experimental models provide a new opportunity for the treatment of cardiac diseases. This section will cover the progress made towards the mechanisms underlying the stem cell development and heart regeneration.
