Sustained Delivery Of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1/Hepatocyte Growth Factor Promotes Endogenous Cardiac Repair And Regeneration In The Chronic Ischemic Heart

The aim of this study was to test the sustained release of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) using an injectable supramolecular hydrogel based on ureido-pyrimidinone (UPy) moieties in order to recruit and activate endogenous porcine cardiac stem/progenitor cells (epCSCs) towards the infarct borderzone leading to increased myocardial repair in a porcine model of chronic myocardial infarction (MI).
