Stem cell research begins in UK

22nd June 2007

New research to examine if stem cells can repair heart muscle damaged by a heart attack is to get under way in the UK.

Trials will take place in Bristol where patients who have volunteered to take part will be injected with their own bone marrow stem cells during routine coronary bypass surgery.
Doctors believe they will know within six months if the stem-cell treatment makes a difference.

The latest study starts in August at the University of Bristol and the Bristol Heart Institute among patients who have had a heart attack within the last 10 days to three months.
