VATICAN CITY (CNS): Italian researchers have developed a method to repair a damaged heart using adult stem cells, and said it confirmed that the adult cells were more therapeutically useful than embryonic stem cells.

“The adult stem cell is already prepared to differentiate in the tissue we want to repair. And it is certainly more productive, less wasteful and less dangerous – beyond the ethical aspects – to work with adult stem cells instead of embryonic stem cells,” Settimio Grimaldi, who is an expert at the Institute of Neurobiology and Molecular Medicine in Rome, which carried out the research, said.
