The article discusses research being done on the transplantation of cardiac-committed mouse embryonic stem cells to infarcted sheep myocardium. It references a study by C. Ménard and colleagues published in a 2005 issue of "The Lancet" journal. The researchers stressed that the results of the study had been obtained in grafted sheep without any need for immunosuppression and without teratomas or rejection.
