Stem-cell Therapies Use Immune System to Repair Broken Hearts

Stem-cell Therapies Use Immune System to Repair Broken Hearts Biologists have uncovered the mechanism by which stem-cell therapies improve heart function. Working in mice, a team of researchers found that the cells prompt an immune response that improves the organ’s function and also discovered how to mimic this repair with
