Tissue Regeneration

Can scientists mend a broken heart? New medical research on the zebra-fish could hold the answer. This tiny freshwater fish has an amazing ability to regenerate its own heart, spinal cord and other tissue and this could offer hope of recovery to millions of people living with permanent heart damage after a heart attack. Carte Blanche examines this medical discovery.
