Detailed Description:
Injection of autologous concentrated bone marrow cells into the myocardium during CABG procedure.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects must meet all of the following inclusion criteria to be enrolled in the trial:

  • Age 18 years and ability to understand the planned treatment.
  • Patients with ischemic congestive heart failure requiring by pass surgery
  • Congestive heart failure with ejection fraction 40%.
  • Serum bilirubin, SGOT and SGPT 2.5 time the upper level of normal.
  • Serum creatinine < 3.0 or no dialysis.
  • NYHA performance status > 3.
  • Negative pregnancy test (in women with childbearing potential).
  • Subject has read and signed the IRB approved Informed Consent form
  • Hematocrit ≥ 28.0%, White Blood Cell count ≤ 14,000, Platelet count ≥ 50,000, Creatinine ≤ 3.0 mg / Dl, and/or no dialysis, INR ≤ 1.6 unless on Coumadin, or PTT <1.5 x control (to avoid bleeding complications) Patients on Coumadin will be corrected prior to the procedure and must have an INR<1.6 at the time of randomization/surgery

Exclusion Criteria:

Subjects will be excluded if they meet any of the exclusion criteria:

  • Female who is pregnant or nursing, or of child bearing potential and is not using a reliable birth control method, or who intend to become pregnant during the tenure of this study.
  • History of Prior Radiation Exposure for oncological treatment.
  • History of Bone Marrow Disorder (especially NHL, MDS) that prohibit transplantation.
  • History of abnormal Bleeding or Clotting.
  • History of Liver Cirrhosis.
  • Acute Myocardial Infarction < 4 weeks from treatment date.
  • Known active malignancy or results outside of normal limits from the following tests: PAP, Chest X-ray, PSA, Mammogram, Hemocult unless follow-up studies reveal patient to be cancer free.
  • Active clinical infection being treated by antibiotics within one week of enrollment
  • Terminal renal failure with existing dependence on dialysis
  • Inability or unwillingness to comply with the treatment protocol, follow-up, research tests, or give consent.
  • Unable to have 250cc bone marrow harvested.
  • Medical risk that precludes anesthesia or ASA Class 5
  • History of ventricular arrhythmia if AICD is not present.
  • History of ventricular aneurysm.
  • Concurrent surgery such as CABG with valve surgery.
  • Minimally Invasive bypass surgery
  • Life expectancy <6 months due to concomitant illnesses
  • Treatment with immunosuppressant drugs (including Prednisone > 5 mg per day)
  • Patients undergoing urgent by pass surgical procedure
  • Patients with HGB A1C > 8.5%
