Bone Marrow Stem Cell Mobilisation Therapy for Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)(REVIVAL-2)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether stem cell mobilization by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) therapy in patients with acute myocardial infarction after successful mechanical reperfusion reduces infarct size.
Experimental studies and early-phase clinical trials suggest that transplantation of blood-derived or bone marrow-derived progenitor cells may improve cardiac regeneration after acute myocardial infarction. Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) induces mobilization of bone marrow stem cells and, thereby, increases the number of circulating stem cells that are available cells for myocardial regeneration.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Glycoproteins found in a subfraction of normal mammalian plasma and urine. They stimulate the proliferation of bone marrow cells in agar cultures and the formation of colonies of granulocytes and/or macrophages. The factors include INTERLEUKIN-3; (IL-3); GRANULOCYTE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (G-CSF); MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (M-CSF); and GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (GM-CSF).
Receptors, Granulocyte Colony-stimulating Factor
Receptors that bind and internalize GRANULOCYTE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR. Their MW is believed to be 150 kD. These receptors are found mainly on a subset of myelomonocytic cells.
Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor, Recombinant
Granulocyte colony stimulating factors prepared by recombinant DNA technology.
Granulocyte Colony-stimulating Factor
A glycoprotein of MW 25 kDa containing internal disulfide bonds. It induces the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of neutrophilic granulocyte precursor cells and functionally activates mature blood neutrophils. Among the family of colony-stimulating factors, G-CSF is the most potent inducer of terminal differentiation to granulocytes and macrophages of leukemic myeloid cell lines.
Receptors, Granulocyte-macrophage Colony-stimulating Factor
Receptors that bind and internalize the granulocyte-macrophage stimulating factor. Their MW is believed to be 84 kD. The most mature myelomonocytic cells, specifically human neutrophils, macrophages, and eosinophils, express the highest number of affinity receptors for this growth factor.
