New Gene Therapy Could Repair Heart Attack Damage

Scientists at Kings College London may have developed a gene therapy that could regenerate cells damaged during a heart attack.

The therapy would eliminate the scarring that develops on the heart after an attack by restarting cell growth that ends when we are babies.

Experiments on pig hearts have shown promise and the therapy could expand to humans in the next decade.
