The purpose of this study is to determine whether stem cell mobilization by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) therapy in patients with acute myocardial infarction after successful mechanical reperfusion reduces infarct size.

Condition Intervention Phase
Myocardial Infarction
Drug: G-CSF Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor
Other: Placebo
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Clinical Trial of Stem Cell Mobilization by Granulocyte-Colony-Stimulating Factor in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction. Regenerate Vital Myocardium by Vigorous Activation of Bone Marrow Stem Cells (REVIVAL-2) Trial

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of infarct size (measured by Tc-sestamibi scintigraphy) [ Time Frame: measured by Tc-sestamibi scintigraphy baseline, 4 and 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Left ventricular ejection fraction [ Time Frame: Left ventricular ejection fraction ]
  • Incidence of angiographic restenosis [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 114
Study Start Date: February 2004
Study Completion Date: July 2005
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Patients were randomly assigned to receive subcutaneously a daily dose of 10 microg/kg of G-CSF for 5 days.
Drug: G-CSF Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor
Patients were randomly assigned to receive subcutaneously a daily dose of 10 microg/kg of G-CSF for 5 days.
Other Names:
  • Neupogen (Filograstim)
  • Granocyte (Lenograstim)
Placebo Comparator: 2
Patients were randomly assigned to receive subcutaneously a daily dose of placebo for 5 days.
Other: Placebo
Patients were randomly assigned to receive subcutaneously either a daily dose of 10 microg/kg of G-CSF or placebo for 5 days.

Detailed Description:
Experimental studies and early-phase clinical trials suggest that transplantation of blood-derived or bone marrow-derived progenitor cells may improve cardiac regeneration after acute myocardial infarction. Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) induces mobilization of bone marrow stem cells and, thereby, increases the number of circulating stem cells that are available cells for myocardial regeneration.
