Objective: Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (hUC-MSCs) gained importance in acute/chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy because of their outstanding regenerative potential in various pathologic conditions. The present study was designed to determine to what extent hUC-MSCs contribute to myocardial regeneration in acute experimental myocardial infarction (MI) in rats.
