Twin Cities has became another name of hope for some heart patients. Their last hope lies in the adult stem cell experiment in the Minneapolis Heart Institute.

All those 151 people who had lost hope for a successful treatment. They are optimistic about the stem cell experiment. During the study, doctors injected the patients’ hearts with stem cells from their own bone marrow. The goal is to help them grow new blood vessels.

One-third of the patients received a low dose of stem cells, another third received a high dose, and the rest received a placebo.

The study results are not available yet, but doctors are hopeful the study will back up results of a similar study at the Institute two years ago.

Dr. Tim Henry said,

“It means they went from the point they could walk to their mailbox to the point where they could walk a half mile without getting chest pain.”
