The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and activity of two doses of MultiGeneAngio, a cell therapy product produced from the patient's own cells, as potential treatment for patients with chronic critical limb ischemia.
Approximately 16 million patients worldwide (1 in 20 people over the age of 50) suffer from peripheral arterial disease(PAD). PAD is characterized by narrowing or occlusion of vessels supplying blood to the lower limbs, most often due to atherosclerosis. Symptoms of PAD include claudication that may progress to critical limb ischemia manifested by rest pain, tissue loss and gangrene, which eventually may necessitate amputation.
MultiGeneAngio is a cell therapy-based product developed for treatment of patients with chronic critical limb ischemia due to narrow or blocked leg arteries. MultiGeneAngio is composed of endothelial and smooth muscle cells that are isolated from a short vein segment stripped from the patient's arm. After isolation the cells are expanded, characterized, and gene modified by transfer of angiogenic genes.
MultiGeneAngio is a clear cell suspension injected intra-arterially at the site of blockage using a standard diagnostic catheter, in order to create and expand new collateral arteries, and thereby improve blood flow to an ischemic limb.
Comprehensive pre-clinical studies, as well as clinical experience with PAD patients suffering from claudication showed that production and administration of MultiGeneAngio was feasible and safe, as no apparent drug-related adverse events have been observed. Moreover, follow-up data of peak walking times imply a beneficial trend of this efficacy end-point. Additional follow-up data will continue to be collected to help evaluate the safety and efficacy of MultiGeneAngio.

Until now, no study has investigated the risks of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in cirrhosis.
The association of coronary arterial calcification with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality is well-recognized. Lower limb arterial calcification (LLAC) is common in PAD but its impact on subsequen...
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.
Lack of perfusion in the EXTREMITIES resulting from atherosclerosis. It is characterized by INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION, and an ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX of 0.9 or less.
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
