Can Adult Stem Cells heal a damaged heart?

Barry’s did

Barry Brown (above), whose heart muscle was damaged by a heart attack he had suffered years earlier at age 38, received an infusion of his own stem cells during bypass surgery in a clinical trial led by UHealth’s Joshua Hare, M.D. “I could actually feel my heart healing,” Barry says. Regenerative medicine using stem cell therapy to heal congestive heart failure, other heart diseases, and many other disorders is being pioneered and advanced by University of Miami Miller School of Medicine physicians and scientists working collaboratively within UM’s Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, led by Dr. Hare. Clinical trials featuring these therapies are conducted at University of Miami Hospital.
