Geron Demonstrates hESC-derived cardiomyocytes improve heart function after myocardial infarction
Date:8/27/2007

rdiomyocyte product, GRNCM1, to address the large unmet need in heart failure, Dr. Okarma added. We expect GRNCM1 to be our second hESC-derived cell type to enter clinical development.

Production and Characterization of hESC-derived Cardiomyocytes

In the study, researchers produced human cardiomyocytes from hESCs using a sequential, directed differentiation protocol that did not rely on serum or feeder cells. The procedure was scalable and efficient, with each hESC producing approximately three human cardiomyocytes. After final enrichment, greater than 80% of the cells were cardiomyocytes. The hESC-derived cardiomyocytes displayed surface and intracellular markers, as well as electrophysiologic and pharmacologic properties consistent with human cardiomyocytes, the majority of which represented ventricular cardiomyocytes.

Engraftment Following Transplantation

To enable survival in the heart, the hESC-derived cardiomyocytes were suspended in a cocktail of survival factors that had been experimentally determined to dramatically enhance cell survival after injection into the infarcted ventricular wall. Four weeks later, tissue sections from the infarcted hearts were examined for the presence of the human cells. The vast majority of human cardiomyocytes were localized in the central region of the infarct, suggesting that the cells were capable of engraftment in the hostile environment of the infarct zone. Moreover, a portion of the cardiomyocytes was mitotic after injection, possibly enhancing their regenerative efficiency. The grafts also induced a brisk, host-derived angiogenic response: all the implants contained numerous capillaries lined with rat endothelial cells.

Safety

No teratomas, tumor masses, or aberrant structures were seen in any of the hearts receiving hESC-derived cardiomyocytes. A highly sensitive PCR assay was used to determine whether any hESC-derived cells had migrated to other non-cardiac org
