Minneapolis Heart Institute selected to participate in Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network
Date:4/4/2012

rt attack, heart failure, ischemic heart disease and peripheral arterial disease," Henry said. "The first CCTRN was highly successful in achieving the NIH's goal of promoting clinical research and has led to the expansion of the network to seven clinical centers for seven years.

Henry noted the remarkable progress in cell therapy over the past several years. Currently, there are several large Phase 3 trials, which if proven efficacious, will lead to cell therapy added to the armamentarium for treating patients with challenging cardiovascular diseases. The CCTRN in particular is critical to provide key insights into the preferred cell, and method of delivery to increase the chance of success.

The CCTRN was created to support the collaboration of physicians, researchers and support staff with expertise in innovative stem cell therapies and experience in leading clinical trials that evaluate leading edge treatments for heart disease.

"Stem cell therapy holds great promise for treating heart disease, and researchers involved in CCTRN are helping determine how these promising therapies might be most beneficial to patients," said Sonia I. Skarlatos, PhD, NHBLI's deputy director of the division of cardiovascular sciences and program director of CCTRN. "This new round of funding is an important step in helping to improve cardiovascular health."

The CCTRN also includes the University of Miami, the University of Florida, Stanford University, Texas Heart Institute, Indiana University and University of Louisville.

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming nearly 900,000 lives each year and more lives than the next five leading causes of death combined. One in three Americans suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease and associated costs are estimated at $432 billion in 2007.
