As universities and research centers around the world, continue to unravel the wonders of stem cells, we will consistently continue to read about studies and hear about promising news from many sources. We are experiencing the stem cell revolution, and the possibilities are endless. “We know one thing for sure, the younger the cells are the better, and hence why we are confident that our project Provia Labs and Store-A-Tooth are in the right space of bio-banking,” says Scott Wolf, CEO of Grace Century.
Stem cells to replace heart ops? Pioneering treatment could offer hope to 750,000 patients who use machines to help pump blood around the body
- New hope for ?end-stage? patients with the most severe form of heart failure
- Those in trial will get single injection of 150m adult stem cells into heart
- Heart failure happens when the organ is unable to pump blood adequately

Patients with chronic heart failure are to receive pioneering stem cell treatment in a new trial which could herald a cure for the biggest killer ?in the industrialised world?. Those taking part in the trial will get a single injection of 150 million adult stem cells into the heart. It could offer new hope for ?end-stage? patients with the most severe form of heart failure who rely on external machines to pump blood around the body to stay alive. Heart failure happens when the organ is unable to pump blood adequately.
