Study hypothesis :
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Intracoronary infusion of autologous bone marrow derived progenitor cells to patients undergoing primary angioplasty for acute anterior myocardial infarction will lead to an improvement in cardiac function greater than that seen by placebo alone.
- To demonstrate that intracoronary delivery of autologous bone marrow progenitor cells is safe.
- To demonstrate that it is feasible to deliver autologous bone marrow derived stem cells within hours of the primary angioplasty procedure
- To show a difference in cardiac function between patients treated with cells and saline(placebo).
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to determine whether adult bone marrow derived stem/progenitor cells improve cardiac function and symptoms in patients with heart failure and to establish the ...
Coronary flow reserve is an important measure of the integrity of the coronary microcirculation. Moreover, impaired coronary flow reserve is a predictor of future cardiovascular events and...
We propose confirm and extend the findings of open studies on the apparent efficacy of bone-marrow derived mononuclear cells for the induction of arteriogenesis in patients with severe cla...
Retinal degeneration is a condition ensued by various ocular disorders such as artery occlusion, diabetic retinopathy, retrolental fibroplasia and retinitis pigmentosa which cause abnormal loss of pho...
Prospects for no-option, end-stage peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients remain poor. Although results from open and semiblinded studies fuel hope for cell-based strategies in no-option patients, s...
Cell therapy trials using cardiac-resident progenitor cells (CPCs) and bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells (BMCs) in patients after myocardial infarction have provided encouraging re...
Persistence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis within human bone marrow stem cells has been identified as a potential bacterial niche during latent tuberculosis. Using a murine model of tuberculosis, we sh...
Age-related bone loss is associated with bone marrow adiposity. Adipokines (e.g. visfatin, resistin, leptin) are adipocyte-derived factors with immunomodulatory properties and might influence differen...
Cells derived from BONE MARROW that circulate in the adult bloodstream and possess the potential to proliferate and differentiate into mature ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
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.
Glycoproteins found on immature hematopoietic cells and endothelial cells. They are the only molecules to date whose expression within the blood system is restricted to a small number of progenitor cells in the bone marrow.
Neoplasms located in the bone marrow. They are differentiated from neoplasms composed of bone marrow cells, such as MULTIPLE MYELOMA. Most bone marrow neoplasms are metastatic.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
