The primary objective of this study is to test that endocardial stem cells implantation in patients who have CAD, low ejection fraction and signs of HF without possibility of CABG and PCI or despite on previous revascularization improves long-term survival compared to MED alone

Condition Intervention Phase
Myocardial Ischemia
Procedure: Autologous bone marrow mononuclear stem cells or peripheral blood stem cells
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Efficacy of the Endocardial Stem Cells Implantation in Ischemic Heart Failure Patients

Further study details as provided by Meshalkin Research Institute of Pathology of Circulation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Null Hypothesis (Ho): There is no survival benefit in the stem cells group compared to the control group ( isolate MED therapy). H0: Ө ≤ 1 Alternative Hypothesis (Ha): There is a survival benefit in the stem cells group. HA: Ө > 1 [ Time Frame: 2007-2010 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
