Cardiac iPSCs for Drug Discovery

Heart disease is the cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world. While the use of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSCs) in regenerative medicine is a long-term goal. Recent technological advancement has enabled the generation of patient-specific and disease-specific human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (iPSC-CMs) in vitro. iPSC-CMs carry all the genetic information and therefore may be an ideal platform for elucidating disease modeling, drug screening, and cell therapy. Here I will discuss recent advances in this technology in the cardiovascular field.
