Howard Leonhardt to Present 25 Years of Experience With Stem Cell Transplantation at 28th Annual Interventional Cardiology Conference in Snowmass, Colo., on March 28
Date:3/26/2013

SNOWMASS, Colo., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Howard Leonhardt of Bioheart, Inc., and Leonhardt Ventures will be presenting his team's experience with stem cell transplantation at the 28th Annual International Symposium of Interventional Cardiology. The conference, which will explore a comprehensive approach to the percutaneous management of structural heart disease and coronary and peripheral vascular disease, will be held at the Westin Hotel in Snowmass Village, Colo., from March 24 - 29, 2013. Leonhardt's presentation, titled "25 Years' Experience With Myoblast Transplantation" and listed as Oral Abstract Session VI in the program, will take place Thursday, March 28, from 7 - 10 a.m.

Over the past 25 years, Bioheart's research and trials in stem cell transplantation for treating heart failure have revealed the following:

  • Embyronic stem cells do not work in myocardial scar tissue. They form fibroblasts or more scar. They die out.
  • Cardiomyocytes die out when injected in myocardial scar tissue (they require too much oxygen and nutrients) and cannot be multiplied to therapeutic dosages. They are electrically unstable in scar tissue.
  • Adipose, blood, bone marrow, placenta and embryonic stem cells cannot grow new muscle in scar tissue.
  • Cardiac stem cells only work to form new muscle on the rim edge of a scar, not in the center.
  • Only myoblasts or immature myoblasts are able to form new contractile muscle in scar tissue.
  • Over 4,000 animal studies have been completed, with the large majority yielding positive results for myoblast transplantation.
  • More than 400 patients have been enrolled in clinical trials for myoblast transplantation since June 2000.
  • Direct needle catheter injection into scar ti
