Abstract

Finding a cure for cardiovascular disease remains a major unmet medical need. Recent investigations have started to unveil the mechanisms of mammalian heart regeneration. The study of the regenerative mechanisms in lower vertebrate and mammalian animal models has provided clues for the experimental activation of proregenerative responses in the heart. In parallel, the use of endogenous adult stem cell populations alongside the recent application of reprogramming technologies has created major expectations for the development of therapies targeting heart disease. Together, these new approaches are bringing us closer to more successful strategies for the treatment of heart disease.
