Abstract

Experimental observations suggesting adult stem cell plasticity and cross-lineage transdifferentiation have underpinned the investigation of cell therapy for cardiovascular disease. Many challenges still face the full realization of cardiovascular regenerative medicine. This brief review will highlight some of these, with emphasis on the choice of cell preparation, route of cell delivery and tracking of delivered cells.
