Drug Could Regenerate Damaged Tissue After a Heart Attack, Study Suggests
US researchers claim to have identified a groundbreaking drug that could restore heart muscle function following a heart attack.  A new study describes how MSI-1436, a naturally occurring compound, regenerates heart muscle tissue in zebrafish and mice. The animals are separated by 450 million years of evolution, raising hopes that the drug could help heal human hearts too.
