 Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the developed countries and various physical conditions in heart failure attribute to the impaired physical activities, which promotes aging. The principle cause of heart failure is the loss of self-renewal ability of cardiomyocytes in various injuries such as myocardial infarction. The replacement of injured tissues with the regenerated human myocardial tissues using technologies on tissue engineering and iPS cell will provide us the novel therapeutic strategy for heart failure and the related aging issues.
