New Preclinical Study ResultsThe preclinical study undertaken at the Carlyle Cardiothoracic Surgery Center at Emory University, Atlanta, GA, evaluated the effect of ischemia-reperfusion (IR), induced by balloon occlusion of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery for 75 minutes, followed by reperfusion (balloon deflation) on myocardial expression of luciferase (Luc, a reporter gene easily measured and quantified in the heart) after intracoronary infusion of Ad5Luc (10e11 viral particles). The study results showed that intracoronary infusion of Ad5Luc to normal (non-ischemic) pig heart caused no or very little Luc expression (0.2+/- 0.6 pg Luc/g tissue), measured 3 days after administration. In contrast, intracoronary infusion of Ad5Luc after ischemia and reperfusion resulted in statistically significantly higher Luc expression in the ischemic region of the heart (90.4+/- 26.5 pg Luc/g tissue; p<0.05).  Another important outcome of the study was the demonstration that intracoronary infusion of Ad5Luc directly to the ischemic region of the left ventricle caused no myocardial inflammation or any other untoward effects.

"These important preclinical findings suggest that induced myocardial ischemia can increase the heart muscle uptake of the adenovector that is used to deliver DNA into cells.  As a result of these new insights we may consider modifications to future clinical studies and clinical trial protocols in order to potentially enhance patients' angiogenic response and therapeutic effect and reduce response variability," stated Christopher J. Reinhard, Cardium's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  

Reinhard added, "We look forward to receiving clearance from the Russian Health Authority to initiate our Generx clinical study at three leading medical centers in Moscow.  We believe there is a growing need for innovative and cost-effective cardiovascular care to meet the incr
