Development of regenerative therapeutic strategies to reverse the progression of advanced heart failure is one of the most urgent clinical needs of this century. Insights gained from clinical trials of adult stem cells, together with fundamental scientific advances in cardiac stem cell and regenerative biology, are beginning to yield potential new targets and strategies for regenerative therapies. Of particular importance are new scientific discoveries related to intrinsic cardiac regeneration, renewal factors that can trigger regeneration, and tissue-engineering technology, which are beginning to change the way investigators view the scientific and clinical position of cardiovascular regenerative therapy.
