Scientists grow working heart muscle from stem cells in major medical step forward

Researchers have taken a huge step towards regrowing organs by successfully creating functional heart tissue out of adult stem cells. The breakthrough could mean that repairs to damaged hearts could be performed with a patient’s own cells. That reduces the need to find a matching donor and also reduces chances that the body will reject […]
