Data Indicate Administering Ischemia-Tolerant Mesenchymal Stem Cells (itMSCs) Intravenously Improves Cardiac Function Following an AMI
ROME, ITALY – EUROPEAN SOCIETY OF CARDIOLOGY CONGRESS 2016 – Aug. 29, 2016 – Study sponsor CardioCell LLC, a global biotechnology company that uses allogeneic stem cells for cardiovascular indications, announces data from its pre-clinical study “Mesenchymal stem cells grown under chronic hypoxia traffic to regions of myocardial infarction, suppress splenic natural killer cells, and attenuate adverse remodeling in mice with large acute MI” at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress.
Paper Co-Author Dr. Michael Lipinski, Interventional Cardiologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, presents the study that was designed in collaboration with Drs. Dror Luger, Research Scientist at Washington Hospital Center and Stephen Epstein, Director, Translational and Vascular Biology Research at MedStar Heart and Vascular Institute, Chair of CardioCell’s Scientific Advisory Board and Member of CardioCell’s Heart Failure Advisory Board.
