Bioheart Reports Promising Results From SDF-1 Modified MyoCell(R) Therapy in Heart Failure Study
Date:7/24/2008

Pre-Clinical Data Shows Increased Muscle and Blood Vessel Formation in

Animals' Hearts

SUNRISE, Fla., July 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Results of a preclinical study involving the injection of myoblasts modified to express stromal derived factor-1(alpha) protein (SDF-1) into the scar tissue of the myocardium of rats, which suggest improved heart function, were recently presented at two scientific meetings -- the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) in Toronto, and the American Society of Gene Therapy Meeting (ASGT) in Boston.

The data, presented by Bijoy Thattaliyath, MD, Post-doctoral Associate, Department of Pediatric Cardiology, University of Florida Health Science Center, showed a decrease of 0.02ml in end systolic volume (0.13ml to 0.11ml) and a 38 percent increase in stroke volume (0.31 ml to 0.43 ml) from three weeks post-myocardial infarction (MI, heart attack) to eight weeks post-cell transplantation, as presented in one of the SDF-1 modified myoblast (SDF-MB) transplanted animals. These results are indicative of 'positive remodeling', or return to normal heart function in the same period. Similar results were found in other study animals. Histopathology confirmed that myoblasts expressing SDF-1 resulted in increased muscle and blood vessel formation in the damaged areas of the hearts, which was not observed in the control.

Additionally, there was an 11.7 percent plus or minus 2.9 percent (p=0.02) absolute improvement in ejection fraction between three weeks post-MI and eight weeks post-cell transplantation in the SDF-MB treated animals. By comparison, and as anticipated, the control arm worsened in the same period. Ejection fraction is the percentage of blood pumped out of the heart's left ventricle with every heartbeat into the body's vasculature. A higher percent ejection fraction means more efficient heart function.
