Further study details as provided by Instituto de Molestias Cardiovasculares:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Suppress pain and heal ischemic ulcers [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • improve quality of life [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: April 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2007
Detailed Description:

About 500cc of blood are collected from the iliac bone marrow under epidural anesthesia.In the cell therapy lab this blood is harvested and mononuclear cells are separated.This procedure takes roughly 4 hours.After dilution in albumin (40cc)the mononuclear cells are injected into the calf muscles through 40 shots.This procedure is indicated for patients with lower limb ischemia on whom all the others known therapies have failed
