Nanotech Heals Damaged  Heart Tissue

Nanotech Heals Damaged Heart Tissue

In cooperation with an American research team, researchers at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences have developed nanostructures which heal heart tissues damaged in a heart attack. “A protein coding gene called FSTL1 has an important role in healing the myocardium tissue which is the most important damaged tissue after a heart attack,” said Morteza Mahmoudi, project manager. According to Mahmoudi, nano-structured collagen scaffolds containing FSTL1 were developed which have the same physical and mechanical properties as a fetal myocardium. The results of the search have been published in Nature Magazine, vol. 525, Mehr News Agency reported.
