Stem cells were used to treat and heal Eddie Floyd after he suffered an almost life-threatening heart attack. Mr. Floyd, who had suffered a heart attack a couple of years previously, was brought into to the hospital and asked if he wanted to participate in a stem cell research clinical trial using adult stem cells to help fix his heart muscle. Mr. Floyd agreed to participate in the stem cell trial and was thrilled with the results. The stem cell therapy not only healed his heart muscle completely, but there is also no sign of damage or any complications visible from the heart attack that almost took his life.
This is just one example of how stem cell therapy can be used to treat a variety of life-threatening conditions, including heart disease.
