Bioengineered Patch, Molecular “Booster” Could Improve Stem Cells Ability Treat Heart Failure

Despite the intense activity and high hopes that surround the use of stem cells to reverse heart disease, scientists still face multiple roadblocks before the treatment will be ready for clinical prime time. Researchers are now finding ways to maximize the healing potential of stem cells by helping them overcome the inhospitable conditions of a damaged heart – bringing the promise of stem cell therapy for heart disease one step closer to reality.

Better than Stem Cells: Researchers Develop a Faster Way to Treat the Heart after a Heart Attack

For healing the heart after a heart attack, stem cell therapies show promise but are slow to implement. Researchers develop a new treatment called microsphere therapy that can be kept on-hand and administered more readily than stem cells.

Wichita State University Researcher: Cardiovascular Health Affects Hearing, Speech

RayHull.jpg

Ray Hull, professor of communication sciences and disorders in audiology/neurosciences at Wichita State University, has concluded research analyzing 84 years of work from scientists worldwide into the connection between cardiovascular health and the ability to hear and understand what others are saying. Hull’s work connected the dots from 70 scientific studies to confirm a direct link.
