The ADCs in the injured areas of the experimental group also expressed cell markers consistent with cardiac muscle cells at day 14, suggesting the cells differentiated into cardiac muscle.
from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Harvard-MIT HST, Cambridge, MA, placed cardiac muscle cells taken from newborn rats into silicone chambers, which they surgically introduced into adult rats, placing them in close proximity to the femoral artery and vein, which provided the necessary blood supply to ensure growth of the cells, enabling them to fill the chambers with living, beating heart tissue within three weeks.
