Injectable ‘GEL’ may help revive broken heart!!!

Scientists have found an injectable gel that slowly releases short gene sequences known as micro RNAs that may help regrow cardiac muscles after heart attack.
Researchers developed a new approach to restart replication in existing contractile(heart) cells called ‘cardiomyocytes’.They were able to inhibit some of the inherent stop signals that keep cardiomyocytes from replicating, resulting in cardiomyocytes reactivating their proliferative potential.The most important trait of the gel is —it is shear -thinning and self healing.
