Abstract During the past 15 years, our research group has transplanted fetal/neonatal cardiomyocytes, mesenchymal stem cells, and embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes into infarcted myocardium in a rat myocardial infarction model. Our experimental data demonstrated that cell transplantation therapy provides a potential approach for the treatment of injured myocardium after myocardial infarction based on the reported positive effects upon histological appearance and left ventricular function. However, the underlying mechanisms of the benefits from cell transplantation therapy remain unclear and may involve replacement of scar tissue by transplanted cells, induced neoangiogenesis and paracrine effects of factors released by the transplanted cells. In this review, we summarize our experiences from experimental cell transplantation therapy in a rat myocardial infarction model and discuss the controversies and questions that need to be addressed in future studies.
