Capricor's Cell Therapy Trial Shows Promising Results for Muscular Dystrophy

Promising results

As per the company’s report, preliminary results are encouraging and promising. They reported that after the trial there had been an improvement in both the cardiac functioning and limb strength in the participants.

Motor function of limbs improved in almost 90% of participants as compared to 0% in the controlled group.

The trial also demonstrated the thickening of ventricular muscles of the heart. These are the muscles that play a central role in the pumping of blood from the heart. In one-third of participants, there was some thickening of heart muscles, whereas in the control group there was worsening.
