New spray could someday help heal damage after a heart attack.

SUZHOU(CN), July 2021 — Heart attack, or myocardial infarction, is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Although modern surgical techniques, diagnostics and medications have greatly improved early survival from these events, many patients struggle with the long-term effects of permanently damaged tissue, and the 5-year mortality rate remains high.

Now, researchers reporting in ACS Nano have developed a minimally invasive exosome spray that helped repair rat hearts after myocardial infarction.

Suffered a recent stroke?

Did you know that new research shows that stem cells injected into distant arteries or veins travel to the site of a stroke in the brain to fuel the repair process? While the optimal time for introducing stem cells seems to be between 36 and 72 hours after the stroke, injecting stem cells after that period of time has also proved to be beneficial. For more information, call Miami Stem Cell (305) 598-7777 to learn if you are a candidate for this new treatment option.
