+ - Skin Cells Turned into Heart Muscle Cells Can Fix Damaged Heart

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Researchers say that they can reprogram skin cells into heart muscle cells and that these cells are functional and can integrate into heart. Using patient’s own cells while regenerating heart muscle cells would mean that the body wouldn’t reject them and these cells could blend in the original heart and continue the normal rhythm."
