Results of a 204 patient study presented at the annual American Heart Association meeting in Dallas show that infusing adult stem cells into the heart is effective. Chaophya hospital in Thailand is perfoming a similar treatment (off-trial) for all qualified, no-option, coronary artery disease patients. However, they are using a superior stem cell harvesting technique developed by TheraVitae that uses only a small amount of the patient's own blood and does not require a bone marrow extraction.
