Combined delivery of bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells in chronic ischemic heart disease: rationale and study design


Sürder, Daniel; Radrizzani, Marina; Turchetto, Lucia; Cicero, Viviana Lo; Soncin, Sabrina; Muzzarelli, Stefano; Auricchio, Angelo; Moccetti, Tiziano (2013). Combined delivery of bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells in chronic ischemic heart disease: rationale and study design. Clinical Cardiology, 36(8):435-441.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Treatment with bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BM-MNC) may improve left ventricular (LV) function in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease (IHD). Delivery method of the cell product may be crucial for efficacy.
HYPOTHESIS: We aimed to demonstrate that the combination of intramyocardial and intracoronary injection of BM-MNC is safe and improves LV function in patients with chronic IHD.
METHODS: After a safety/feasibility phase of 10 patients, 54 patients will be randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 pattern to 1 control and 2 BM-MNC treatment groups. The control group will be treated with state-of-the-art medical management. The treatment groups will receive either exclusively intramyocardial injection or a combination of intramyocardial and intracoronary injection of autologous BM-MNC. Left ventricular function as well as scar size, transmural extension, and regional wall-motion score will be assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging studies at baseline and after 6 months. The primary endpoint is the change in global LV ejection fraction by cardiac magnetic resonance from 6 months to baseline.
RESULTS: The results, it is hoped, will have important clinical impact and provide essential information to improve the design of future regenerative-medicine protocols in cardiology.
CONCLUSIONS: As cell delivery may play an important role in chronic IHD, we aim to demonstrate feasibility and efficacy of a combined cell-delivery approach in patients with decreased LV function.
