“If you think of a cell as a drug factory, what we’re doing is targeting cell-based drug factories to damaged or diseased tissues where the cells can produce drugs at high enough levels to have a therapeutic effect,” said Jeffrey Karp, Ph.D.

The family of proteins, called Wnts, send signals from the outside to the inside of a cell, inducing a cellular response crucial for many aspects of embryonic development — including stem cell differentiation — as well as for normal functioning of the adult brain.

A woman who suffered a severe heart attack in July was the first test subject, according to the research team at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI). Her heart had stopped beating before she was resuscitated, causing major damage to the cardiac muscle.
