A stent is a small metal coil, slotted tube, or mesh structure that is placed in a coronary artery to keep it open and wide allowing more blood through. It is a permanent implant and the most common intervention for Coronary Artery Disease. From Yorkshire Post Today: Scientists from Sheffield University are developing the world’s first regenerative device to be inserted into diseased arteries. ..The stent has to be covered with chemicals so the body does not attack it and prevent the heart fully healing. One option is to stop the defensive reaction by coating the stents with human stem cells. Link
But hey, there is not a word about what type of stem or progenitor cell do they use and there is not a hint of the cells’s source???
Imagine a world where every bionic, artificial device in your body is coated with cells of your own before implantation so the body thinks first that the device is the organic part of its own make-up.
