Notterdam, generally increased risk of heart disease when one’s hips began to widen. This assumption seems to be adjusted again, now that the scientists really take advantage of fat in the waist to cure heart disease.
Scientists from Erasmus University, Notterdam, the Netherlands succeeded in developing stem cells (stem cells) derived from the fat deposits around the waist. The cell was then injected into the liver fail to address the causes of muscle damage jangung.
Compared with stem cells derived from other organs, stem cells from the waist fat is required to provide a number of benefits for the heart. In addition to not affect normal blood flow, the cells are also able to increase the ability of the heart in pumping blood.
In a trial of 11 men and 3 women with heart defects, the breakthrough was able to show satisfactory results. One is to improve the quality of the heart muscle by 3.5 percent within 6 months after the injection of stem cells.
Improving the quality of the heart muscle is shown from the rate of heart muscle damage was reduced by 16.2 percent. Meanwhile, the ability of the organ to pump blood increased by 5.7 percent.
Another advantage is that almost all adults now have the deposition of fat in the waist, so it is not difficult to get it. Of the approximately 250 cubic centimeters of fat in the area, scientists can get at least 20 million stem cells will be injected into the heart.
“Tests prove the beginning of stem cells from fat, waist safe to use after an acute heart attack,” said one scientist involved in the trial, Dr. Eric Duckers, as quoted from Dailymail, Thursday (18/11/2010).
Experiments with a larger scale will be done in the near future by involving 375 people from all over Europe. Participants will include the ability of blood the heart pumps have been reduced an average of 45 percent.
