BAR HARBOR, Maine (Catching Health) — MDI Biological Laboratory in Mount Desert Island, Maine has been awarded a patent on a tiny molecule called MSI-1436.
This is a big deal for two reasons:
1. It’s a first for MDI.
2. It paves the way for a possible drug that would repair and regenerate damaged heart tissue.
Our bodies already have a remarkable ability to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. Think of how skin heals after a cut or surgery, how torn muscles repair themselves, how you could lose a huge portion of your liver and it would be able to regenerate itself, how broken bones knit.
