Delivery of VN100 via cardiac catheter into the infarcted heart where viral particles diffuse rapidly in myocardial tissue and stimulate the division of mature healthy cardiomyocytes in the infarct border zone and expand the pool of committed cardiac progenitor cells in order to repopulate the infarct zone and restore cardiac contractile function.
NEWS AND EVENTS
VentriNova, announced today that the journal Science Translational Medicine has published the results of a preclinical study demonstrating the ability of VN-100 to regenerate heart muscle in large animals following a heart attack.
