  • Myocardial Recovery!


    (MI) results in the loss of 1 billion functional cardiomyocytes, which are replaced with a fibrous scar, frequently leading to heart failure. Experimental data demonstrate that the mitotic renewal in the human myocardium exists but at a very low rate: 1% annually at the age of 25 and 0.45% at the age of 75. With this turnover rate, most cardiomyocytes will never be exchanged during a normal life span. Although the renewal rate may increase somewhat after injury, the heart itself is not able to effect large-scale cardiac regeneration.

    *La difficolt nello svolgere il compito assegnatomi legata al grande numero di lavori pubblicati in letteratura negli ultimi anni (il primo lavoro sullutilizzo di staminali nelluomo stato pubblicato nel 2002. oggi c.a 250), alla diversit dei contesti clinici, delle modalit di somministrazione e dei materiali biologici e farmacologici utilizzati nei diversi studi.Per fornire un quadro di insieme sufficientemente chiaro, stato necessario innanzitutto distinguere i diversi contesti patologici in cui si sono realizzati i trials clinici, cercare di riassumerne i risultati in termini sia di efficacia che di sicurezza, ed infine cercare di ordinare da un lato le domande che gli studi hanno aperto, e le prospettive che hanno contribuito a delineare.This recent work pubished on Am H J shows that the clinical determinants of post MI LV remodelling are: the infarction of anterior wall, the extent of CK release, the low EF, and the infarc size area. ***La ricerca clinica e sperimentale in ambito di medicina rigenerativa ha definitivamente minato il dogma per cui il cuore non abbia possibilit di riparazione nella vita post-natale.Oggi definitivamente riconosciuto che poco pi del 50% dei cardiomiociti venga cambiato durante la vita. *Jo rn Tongers1*, Douglas W. Losordo2, and Ulf Landmesser3* European Heart Journal (2011) 32, 11971206Cariosfere: Il cuore umano, infatti, contiene cellule staminali cardiache/progenitrici endogene che si possono isolare ed espandere a partire da campioni di biopsie atriali e/o ventricolari. Queste cellule crescono sottoforma di aggregati multicellulari detti Cardiosfere (CS), che possono essere isolate ed espanse da biopsie endomiocardiache (Messina E. et al. 2004; Circ. Res. 95:911-21). Sebbene scarsamente differenziate, le cellule staminali cardiache vanno incontro a maturazione spontanea. Le CS esprimono marcatori di staminalit nella porzione centrale, e marcatori di differenziamento cardiaco, endoteliale, vascolare e mesenchimale in periferia. Le CS sono capaci di prolungato autorinnovamento e sono dotate di alto potenziale cardiogenico. Tali caratteristiche rendono queste cellule particolarmente appropriate per la terapia cellulare autologa Cardiospheres: Another type of cardiac resident stem cell has been identified by growing self-adherent clusters (termed cardiospheres) from subcultures of murine or human biopsy specimens. Others have generated cardiac SP-cell ( side population-cells) derived cardiospheres by adapting a method used for creating neuro-spheres suggesting that cardiac neural crest cells may contribute to cardiac SP cellsCardiosphere-derived cardiac stem cells as well as c-Kit cardiac stem cells are capable of long-term self-renewal and can differentiate into the major specialized cell types of the heart: myocytes and vascular cells expressing both endothelial or smooth muscle cell markers. The exact origin of these c-Kit, Sca-1, SP, Islet-1, or cardiosphere-derived cardiac stem cells and the mechanisms maintaining the cardiac stem cell pool are unclear. Two recent studies suggest that c-Kit and cardiac SP cells may arise from the bone marrow,26,27 however these studies cannot entirely exclude that specific subpopulations of cardiac stem cells originate from the heart and these cardiac stem cells may represent remnants from embryonic development in selected niches within the heart. In summary, although several different types of adult stems.Come fare ad ottenere le cellule? Bone marrow is, at present, the most frequent source used clinically for cardiac repair.29 The rapid tr
