Book Description :

The feld of regenerative medicine is in its infancy state. Enthusiasm for the potential of organ regeneration lies with the potential pluripotency of stem cells to differentiate into various tissue types. This volume of Methods in Molecular Biology will focus on the use of stem cells for myocardial repair and regeneration. The emphasis of this issue will be to provide basic scientists, translational investigators, and cardiologists a means to evaluate the effcacy and safety of stem cells in a standardized fashion for myocardial regeneration. Many different cell types have been considered for myocardial repair. Adult card- myocytes are unable to survive even when transplanted into normal myocardium. The use of fetal or neonatal cardiomyocytes is not a feasible source of cells due to ethical concerns and donor availability. Therefore, the use of pluripotent stem cells has become the focus of a cell source for myocardial repair and regeneration. A variety of stem cell types have been suggested to participate in myocardial repair. This has led the investigators to search for the “optimal cell type for myocardial repair”. Reliable isolation of the cell source with the ability to expand the cell population is a prerequisite. In the frst section of this book, methods for isolation of commonly used stem cells being investigated for myocardial regeneration are presented. Once a stem cell source has been selected, the stem cell needs to be tested in an app- priate animal model before being translated into clinical practice.

Abstract: Despite major advances in pharmacological and surgical treatments of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), clinical outcomes of patients with severe CVDs remain very poor. Most of medication and interventions currently available are only playing roles of preventing further damage to myocardium, declining the risk of on-going cardiovascular events, lifting the cardiac pumping efficiency and lower early mortality rates, none of these treatments can regenerate or repair damaged cardiac tissue or restore heart function. As a result, several new strategies have been explored to overcome limitations of current therapeutic approaches. One prospective is to replace dead cardiac vascular cells with young and green cells to repair or regenerate damaged heart myocardium. Several types of stem cells, including bone marrow hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), embryonic stem cell (ESCs)and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), have been tested as the candidates for treatment of CVDs. Among a myriad of types of stem cells, bone marrow derived MSCs(BM-MSCs) has received great attention based on several unique properties such as easy isolation and expansion, stable genetic background and low immunogenicity. However, the therapeutic efficacy of BM-MSCs derived from aging or diseased donors is impaired. The differentiation potential of BM-MSCs is gradually reduced with the increased culture time. Thus, it is urgent to identify some novel alternative sources for MSCs. Moreover, the potential mechanisms of MSCs therapy have not been understood totally. This thesis is designed to investigate the therapeutic efficacy and potential mechanisms of several novel types of MSCs, including hESC-MSCs and hiPSC-MSCs and Rap1-/--BM-MSCson several types of CVDs, including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)and myocardial infarction (MI). In Chapter 4, it disclosed that hESC-MSCs have a better therapeutic efficacy than BM-MSCs in attenuation of PAH induced by monocrotaline in mice. The greater therapeutic potential of hESC-MSCs on PAH was not only attributed to the higher capacity of differentiation into de-novo vascular cells, but also attributed to higher cell survival rate and greater paracrine effects post-transplantation. In Chapter 5, it demonstrated that compared with BM-MSCs, iPSC-MSCs have a better therapeutic effect on doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy. Several potential mechanisms of action were involved in iPSC-MSCs-based therapy for cardiomyopathy. It demonstrated that iPSC-MSCs transplantation not only attenuated the generation of reactive oxygen species(ROS)and the level of inflammation, but also restored depletion of cardiac progenitor cells and promoted endogenous myocardial regeneration against doxorubicin induced cardiomyopathy. Moreover, mitochondrial transfer and paracrine actions of iPSC-MSCs played critical roles in the rescue for doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy. In Chapter 6, it uncovered that compared with wild type BM-MSCs, Rap1-/--BM-MSCs transplantation achieved a better benefit to MI induced by ligation of left anterior descending (LAD)coronary artery. Rap1-mediated NF-κB activity plays a key role in regulation MSCscytokine secretion profiles. The absence of Rap1 in MSCs leads to reduced pro-inflammatory cytokines secretion and enhanced MSCs survival capacity, thus yielding a better therapeut

Book Description :

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in the United States. Myocardial infarction (MI) induces massive cellular death and leads to a decline in cardiac function. Cardiomyocytes have limited proliferative capacity sparking interests in molecular and cellular strategies to promote stem cell conversion into new cardiomyocytes. Cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs) are tissue resident stem cells that give rise to cardiomyogenic structures. Although, CPCs introduced into the heart confer improvements in cardiac function after MI, these effects are not sufficient to support complete heart regeneration and prevent heart failure. Studying molecular pathways that contribute to CPC survival and commitment is essential in advancing CPC based therapeutic approaches. Ca2+/Calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II[Delta]B (CaMKII[Delta]B) regulates survival and growth in cardiomyocytes. However, the role of CaMKII[Delta] in CPCs has not been previously explored. CPCs increase nuclear CaMKII after MI and in vitro differentiation suggesting that CaMKII[Delta]B contributes to the regulation of CPC commitment. Overexpression of CaMKII[Delta]B in CPCs reduces proliferation, enhances resistance to death and increases cardiac specific differentiation. CaMKII[Delta]B may serve as a novel modulatory kinase to promote CPC survival and commitment. Despite increasing use of stem cells for regenerative-based cardiac therapy, the optimal stem cell population(s) remains uncertain. In the past decade there has been increasing interest and characterization of stem cell populations reported to directly and/or indirectly contributes to cardiac regeneration through processes of cardiomyogenic commitment and / or release of cardioprotective paracrine factors. Future therapies require development of unprecedented concepts to enhance myocardial healing. Combinatorial cell therapy utilizing CPCs and bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) promote enhanced reparative functions in vivo. However, identifying cell specific mechanisms of cardiac repair are difficult using dual cell systems. Here, we performed cell fusion between CPCs and MSCs to obtain hybrids with combined cell characteristics called CardioChimeras. Our ideal cell therapy is to combine the beneficial properties of CPCs to undergo cardiac specific commitment as well as MSCs that foster an improved microenvironment with protective paracrine secretion.

Book Description :

Over the past 5 years there has been great excitement and controversy in the scientific, financial, and lay literature for the potential of stem cell-based strategies for the prev- tion and treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Not that long ago we believed we were born with a set number of cardiac myocytes and that once damaged there was no hope to replace them. The interest in the field stems from the magnitude of cardiovascular disease in the world. Our ability to treat and help patients survive acute myocardial infarction (MI) has resulted in a near epidemic of CHF. There are more than 5 million Americans who currently carry the diagnosis of CHF. With more than 1 million MIs a year in the United States, there are approx 500,000 new cases of CHF diagnosed each year. The goal of Stem Cells and Myocardial Regeneration is to present, in a coherent manner, the current state of knowledge of stem cell-based therapies for cardiac dysfunction, including current findings in both the laboratory and the clinic trials. The first section of this Stem Cells and Myocardial Regeneration focuses on the magnitude of the problem and the successes and failures of what we consider optimal medical therapy. It is on this background that stem cell-based therapy needs to build.
