Abstract

We discuss here the rapid progress of stem cell therapy in myocardial infarction. In particular, we focus on the issue of transdifferentiation as a "hallmark" of the stem cell's potential to replace damaged cells of the heart. A study by Henning and colleagues in this issue of Cell Transplantation supports the alternative notion of a nontransdifferentiation- mediated protection of the heart as an equally robust mechanism underlying the therapeutic potential of stem cells.
