Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center & The Heart House Participating in Research Study Using Adult Stem Cells for Chronic Cardiac Condition
Date:6/12/2013

Camden, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center and The Heart House are participating in a clinical study to determine whether a patient’s own (autologous), adult, stem cells are safe and can relieve chronic chest pain caused by coronary artery disease, as well as increase their ability to walk/exercise.

The RENEW study, sponsored by Baxter Healthcare Corporation and endorsed by the FDA to support a Biologic License Application for investigational CD34+ cell therapy, is a Phase III clinical trial to test the safety and efficacy of CD34+ stem cells. The study is being conducted at only 50 sites in North America and will involve approximately 440 patients.

The Principal Investigator, Vijay Verma, MD, FACC, and Sub-Investigator Andrew Zinn, MD, both interventional cardiologists with Cardiovascular Associates of the Delaware Valley (The Heart House), performed the first procedure at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center on April 25, 2013. The patient suffers from severe refractory angina, with two of the three arteries that supply oxygen to the heart completely blocked and is unable to undergo conventional revascularization.

“The patient suffers chest pain every day due to the blockages,” said Dr. Verma. “She has exhausted all other optimal therapies, including angioplasty, bypass surgery and enhanced external counter pulsation (EECP) to relieve the persistent chest pain.”

Patients enrolled in the study are randomly assigned to undergo the procedure or receive the standard of care. Patients in the procedure group are blindly randomized to receive either the stem cells or a placebo.

Forty-eight hours prior to the procedure, Dr. Verma conducted Apheresis procedure to selectively withdraw cells from the patient’s bloodstream. These cells were sent to a special lab where CD34+ cells were extracted and sent back to the hospital for injection into the patient’s heart. De
