  1. Induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (iPS-CMs) may be suitable for myocardial repair. While their functional and structural properties have been extensively investigated, their response to isch...

    Authors: Andreja Brodarac, Tomo Šarić, Barbara Oberwallner, Shokoufeh Mahmoodzadeh, Klaus Neef, Julie Albrecht, Karsten Burkert, Matteo Oliverio, Filomain Nguemo, Yeong-Hoon Choi, Wolfram F Neiss, Ingo Morano, Jürgen Hescheler and Christof Stamm
    Citation: Stem Cell Research & Therapy 2015 6:83
  2. Heart disease remains the number one cause of death in developed countries. Loss of cardiomyocytes (CMs) due to aging or pathophysiological conditions (for example, myocardial infarction) is generally consider...

    Citation: Stem Cell Research & Therapy 2014 5:141
  3. Human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hPSC-CMs) are the most promising source of cardiomyocytes (CMs) for experimental and clinical applications, but their use is largely limited by a structurall...

    Citation: Stem Cell Research & Therapy 2014 5:117
  4. Myocardial infarction is accompanied by a significant loss of cardiomyocytes (CMs). Functional CMs, differentiated from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), offer a potentially unlimited cell source for cardiac...
