When a person experiences a heart attack (Myocardial Infarction), in most cases, heart muscles and other cells are damaged during the process as a result of blood stoppage to certain of these muscles and tissues during the event. Blood vessels in the heart are also damaged. These damaged muscle tissues can sometimes turn to become scar tissues. Damaged muscle tissue and damaged vessels in the heart can lead to a whole lists of complications including arrhythmias, heart failure  and in most cases death. More than 23 million patients worldwide are suffering from post heart attack complications.


 
Medical Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have discovered a new way to help the heart regenerate tissues and itself after a heart attack event by the usage  new type of isolated stem cells from placenta. Known as CDx2 Cells, these stem cells have demonstrated the ability to regenerate healthy heart cells and tissues after heart attack  in animal models.
 
These CDX Cells exhibit properties like a ‘smart and expeditious healing group’ of stem cells, in that they can target the site of an injury and travel directly to the injury through the circulatory system and are able to avoid rejection by the host immune system.
 
Prior research by the same team found in animal modes that these stem cells went naturally from the placenta to the mother's heart when it was damaged. These turned into beating muscle cells called cardiomyocytes, the initial stages of heart repair proces
