Long-term Evaluation of Patients Receiving Bone Marrow-derived Cell Administration for Heart Disease

2014-07-23 21:13:35 | BioPortfolio


This study will provide follow-up information and care of patients who have undergone autologous intracoronary bone marrow cell administration at our institution. Patients are monitored for their response to treatment, progression of heart failure and coronary artery disease, and potential later occurring effects of the administered bone marrow cells.

Patients are eligible for this follow-up study if they have received their first intracoronary bone marrow cell administration for the treatment of cardiac disease at our institution from 2001 ongoing.

Participants are generally seen in the clinic at 12 months and 5 years after cell administration, in the meantime regular yearly telephone contacts are performed until 10 years after cell transplantation.

The detailed description contains the planned procedures that are performed during the clinical visits and, if necessary, at additional contacts.


In detail, the following procedures are performed during the clinical visits and, if necessary, at additional contacts:

- periodic physical examination and blood tests

- non-invasive imaging studies may include echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging

- electrocardiogram at rest and during treadmill testing (may include spiroergometry testing)

- interrogation of implanted defibrillators / pacemakers for monitoring of arrhythmias

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.

A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow (BONE MARROW PURGING) of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.

An acute myeloid leukemia in which 20-30% of the bone marrow or peripheral blood cells are of megakaryocyte lineage. MYELOFIBROSIS or increased bone marrow RETICULIN is common.

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.

A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
