Current Stem Cell Delivery Methods for Myocardial Repair

Figure 1

Types of stem cells used for cardiac regenerative therapy. Pluripotent stem cells including ESCs and iPS cells are generally differentiated to cardiac progenitor/cardiomyocytes which are then utilized for heart repair. In contrast, multipotent/unipotent stem cells, such as myoblast, BMSCs, MSCs, and CSCs, are generally used to restore heart function directly.
