Summary

Over the past decade, researchers have initiated innovative, early-phase, clinical trials, including the first-ever testing in humans of cell therapies for myocardial infarction (1), as well as transplantation of embryo-derived tissues for spinal cord repair (2). The next decade promises more initiatives involving first-in-human trials of innovative therapeutic strategies (3).
