Brief description Heart disease is the leading cause of death and treatment options such as bypass surgery are unsuitable for many sufferers, particularly those with diabetes. This project investigates the regulation of new blood vessel growth through the action of antioxidants and also examines the contribution of adult stem cells to this process. Regulating new blood vessel growth provides a novel means to overcome current problems in the management of both non-diabetic and diabetic patients with heart disease.
