This effort linked single-letter alterations in the genetic code -- known as single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs -- with people of known ethnic origins. This data provided a way to identify the ethnic heritage of a donor of any cell.
The rats that received the cardiac specific stem cells had both preservation of cardiac function, and also regeneration of the damaged heart tissue.
In addition to the possible use of Stem-Kine for restoration/maintenance of circulating endothelial progenitor cells, the publication discusses the possibility of using such cells from sources outside of the body, for example cord blood.
