In this study the authors evaluate the results of intramyocardial injection of human resident cardiac stem cells and blood derived circulatory angiogenic cells in a mouse myocardial infarction model, comparing the effect on ventricular function and myocardial repair of combined and individual administration of the cells. Better post-infarct ventricular function and myocardial repair were observed with combination therapy than when either type of cell was given alone.
