Bioheart Announces Cell Therapies Program in the Middle East for Congestive Heart Failure and Peripheral Arterial Disease Patients

(…) Bioheart’s MyoCell® is a regenerative cell therapy that uses myoblasts, or muscle stem cells, that are grown from a patient’s own muscle. MyoCell® has been tested successfully on patients in four clinical trials. The REGEN trial is designed to test the safety and effectiveness of a composition of muscle stem cells that have been gene-modified to induce a greater than usual release of the SDF-1 protein. The SDF-1 protein is a molecule in the human body that, after an injury, is naturally released by most tissues to attract stem cells. The stem cells assist with the healing process.

Doctors with the University of Louisville and officials with Jewish Hospital Friday introduced the recipient of one of the world’s first adult cardiac stem cell infusion to treat congestive heart failure.

Michael Jones, 66, had his own cardiac stem cells injected directly into heart scar tissue, using a cardiac catheterization procedure, according to a news release.

Dr. Mark Slaughter, chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University of Louisville and director of the Heart Transplant and Mechanical Assist Device Program at Jewish Hospital, performed coronary artery bypass surgery on Jones on March 23, according to the release.
