A radical new treatment for heart disease could be developed after Prof. Kristy Red-Horse and her team found cells that can grow into fresh arteries and restore blood supply to the organ. 

The work paves the way for natural bypass therapies that coax heart cells into forming new arteries capable of re-routing blood around diseased and blocked blood vessels. 

The study was published in eLife on October 19, 2015.
