Homing of bone marrow derived mononuclears after intracoronary transventricular transplantation
Published: January 11, 2010
A new method of administration of bone marrow derived mononuclear cells (BMMCs) was studied using the model of acute myocardial infarction in rats. The transplanted cells were detected only in the scar tissue and had fibroblast-like phenotype. They differentiated neither into cardiomyocytes nor into the cells of blood vessels.
