Transflammation: A New Frontier In Regenerative Medicine

Cardiovascular regeneration focuses on repairing or replacing damaged or senescent cardiac and vascular tissue. This damage is largely caused by myocardial ischemia (poor perfusion of the heart causing dysfunction or loss of cardiac tissue) and fibrosis (with replacement of myocytes and vessels with non-functional scar tissue), each of which may lead to heart failure, impaired functional capacity and quality of life, serious arrhythmias, and death. Harnessing the patient’s own reparative capacity to produce new and healthy tissue is one of...
