ABC News interviewed Dr. Amit Patel last night. Dr. Patel, who has used VesCell to treat heart disease patients, discussed how adult stem cells can work to build new arteries.

'"What we do is actually take them out and find the right amount of cells and specifically put them into targeted areas," said Dr. Amit Patel, director of the Cardiac Stem Cell Therapies at The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Results in more than 100 patients show that, within just three months after the stem cell injections, patients see a significant improvement in blood flow to the heart. The heart muscle itself actually doubles its ability to squeeze or contract. Researchers say these adult stem cells might help tens of millions of heart patients each year.'
