Heart damage repaired in mice by gene therapy
April 18, 2012

Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes in the US showed for the first time that injecting a combination of genes into the damaged heart tissue of a living animal could make it beat again.

Researchers Repair Damage Caused by Heart Attacks in Mice
April 18, 2012

Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes successfully converted scar tissue in the mice into beating heart muscle. Their findings, they said, might eventually lead to a similar treatment for people who've had heart attacks.

Regenerative medicine repairs mice from top to toe
April 18, 2012

Deepak Srivastava, director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease, led a team in reprogramming cardiac fibroblasts into cardiomyocytes—the muscle cells of the heart that are permanently lost after a heart attack.

Breakthrough Offers New Hope for Heart Repair
April 18, 2012

Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes reported today that using a new genetic technique, they have succeeded for the first time in repairing, from within, the hearts of mice weakened by heart attacks.

Reversing Heart Attack: Scientists Reprogram Scar Tissue Into Working Muscle
April 18, 2012

Just this week, Gladstone researchers announced a major breakthrough in heart disease research: they successfully reprogrammed scar tissue in live mice back into functional heart muscle.

Project Yields Major Resource For Scientific Research
