Allogeneic iPSC-derived Cardiomyocyte Therapy in Patients With Worsening Ischemic Heart Failure

General Information

Summary This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of allogeneic induced pluripotent cell derived cardiomyocytes (iPSC-CMs) in treating patients with worsening ischemic heart failure undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. After screening, iPSC-CMs will be administrated intramyocardially in consented and eligible patients undergoing open-chest CABG surgery and the estimated population size for the study will be 32 patients.
Clinical trials phase Early Phase 1
Start date (estimated) 2022-10-30
End date (estimated) 2025-07-31
Clinical feature
Label Ischemic Heart Disease
Description A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries, to obstruction by a thrombus, or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (myocardial infarction).

Which differentiated cell type is used
Label cardiac muscle cell
Description Cardiac muscle cells are striated muscle cells that are responsible for heart contraction. In mammals, the contractile fiber resembles those of skeletal muscle but are only one third as large in diameter, are richer in sarcoplasm, and contain centrally located instead of peripheral nuclei.; This class encompasses the muscle cells responsible for heart* contraction in both vertebrates and arthropods. The ultrastucture of a wide range of arthropod heart cells has been examined including spiders, horseshoe crabs, crustaceans (see Sherman, 1973 and refs therein) and insects (see Lehmacher et al (2012) and refs therein). According to these refs, the cells participating in heart contraction in all cases are transversely striated. Insects hearts additionally contain ostial cells, also transversely striated muscle cells, but which do not participate in heart contraction.
