STEM CELLS AND HEART FAILURE
One million Americans die from coronary artery disease each year, making it the nation’s No. 1 killer, according to Banner’s announcement of $2.6 million in funding backing research led by Dr. Mohamed Gaballa.
“The heart can rebuild tissue, that is a fact,” said the Banner institute senior scientist and lead investigator for the adult-stem-cell research project. “Our technique using adult stem cells simply mirrors the work of nature. We’re providing the resources that allow the complex mechanisms of the body to heal itself.”
Sun Health Foundation is providing $2 for the current research with the other $600,000 coming from Banner Health.
Human trials using adult stem cells to build new heart tissue are expected to begin within a year and a half, however, that step brings challenges in funding, Gaballa said. Without patentable drugs or tools that could provide profits, investors often ignore this type of project, according to Banner.
