Could THIS be the end of heart damage? Scientists find cells grown from skin help to 'repair the organ'



Heart damage could be repaired in the future through a new form of stem cell therapy, scientists believe.
The treatment turns specialised cells - such as skin - back into a neutral state so they can develop into heart ones. 
The so-called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) are chosen from a donor genetically similar to the recipient. 
Previous studies have found embryonic stem cells help to treat severe heart failure.
But in new tests on monkeys, the iPSC cells were found to restore some heart damage in five macaques, a study found. 
Researchers from Shinshu University, Japan, chose a... read more
