The Weizmann Effect: Heart disease

Agrin, a molecule in the hearts of newborn babies, appears to regenerate hearts after injury. Agrin seems to unlock a process that allows a damaged heart to grow back with reduced scar tissue, pumping normally again. If preclinical trials are successful, this Weizmann Institute discovery could lead to innovative therapies that save lives.
