World's First Cardiac Adult Stem Cell Patient Receives Infusion
Date:7/24/2009

Trial taking place in Louisville, KY

LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Michael (Mike) Jones has become the world's first recipient of adult cardiac stem cells to treat congestive heart failure. Jones' infusion on July 17 marks the world's first phase-one FDA-approved clinical trial using adult cardiac stem cells to treat heart disease. The clinical trial is being conducted by a team of University of Louisville physicians at Jewish Hospital.

The 66-year-old, self-employed man continues to recover following the outpatient procedure.

Jones suffered from congestive heart failure due to multiple blocked arteries that had resulted in permanent scarring of his heart muscle. During the procedure, Jones' cardiac stem cells were retrieved from a portion of his own atrium, the upper chamber of the heart. The tissue was then sent to Piero Anversa, of Harvard University and Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, for processing and to grow cardiac stem cells from Jones' tissue.

Jones' infusion procedure was performed at Jewish Hospital by Sohail Ikram, M.D., UofL Professor of Medicine and Director and Chief of Invasive and Interventional Cardiology at Jewish Hospital.
