Sorting Through the Stem Cell Hype
Journal of Christian Nursing
As Nancy cared for her patient who had received a somatic stem cell transplant to repair heart muscle damage to the left ventricle, she marveled at this new treatment for those suffering severe muscle damage and cardiac insufficiency after myocardial infarction. The transplant unit had become quite busy caring for patients undergoing stem cell transplantation procedures, as new cures for common diseases and trauma were made available. She wondered what malady stem cell transplants would cure next. Copyright (C) 2007 InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
