The newest treatment to add to the ever-growing list of potential cures consists of cells being grown from human heart tissues. Dr. Eduardo Marban spoke to ABC7 about the new treatment and explained that it's usually used for muscular dystrophy patients, but was found to improve the overall condition of all six critically ill COVID-19 patients. It should be noted that this evidence is anecdotal, but with more research and approval by the FDA, it could serve as a possible treatment.

Judging from the report, and the words used "cells from the heart" we can assume the therapy is somewhat like stem cell research, but the report doesn't state it like that. Doctors have more of the therapy in freezers and plan on testing it on a wider range of patients. If you are interested in reading more about this treatment, check out the report here.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
