Abstract

There have been great progresses in our knowledge of patho-physiology on various cardiovascular diseases, which enabled us to develop the field of regenerative medicine for previously untreatable patients. Among several strategies in cardiovascular regenerative medicine, cell transplantation is one of the best studied and the best clinically practiced. In this review we will first summarize the mechanisms of cell therapy, and then go through lists of cells and diseases that can be applied. Later we will introduce some of the clinical experiences published so far, with some discussion regarding the problems and perspectives of this novel therapeutics.
