Brief Summary:
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the C3BS-CQR-1 in the treatment of patients with chronic heart failure secondary to ischemic cardiomyopathy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Biological: Experimental Biological: Sham comparator Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Patients with chronic heart failure secondary to ischemic cardiomyopathy being on standard of care will be screened per the protocol inclusion and exclusion criteria. Enrolled patients will be randomized on a 1:1 ratio to either standard of care and C3BS-CQR-1 injection (treatment group) or standard of care undergoing a sham procedure (control group). Patients randomized to the treatment group, for which C3BS-CQR-1 production met release criteria, will undergo endoventricular injection of the C3BS-CQR-1 using injection catheter.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Age ≥ 18 and < 80 years.
  2. Systolic dysfunction with LVEF ≤ 35% as assessed by echocardiography.
  3. Ischemic heart failure ineligible for further revascularization. Ischemic heart failure is defined as history of myocardial infarction or evidence of clinically significant coronary disease associated with LV systolic dysfunction leading to HF. The patient must not be a candidate for revascularization in the judgment of the investigator, based on the absence of unstable coronary-related symptoms and either non-invasive testing or coronary angiography within 24 months prior to screening.
  4. Total MLHFQ score > 30.
  5. Ability to perform a Six-Minute Walk Test > 100 m and ≤ 375 m.
  6. History of hospitalization for HF within 12 months prior to screening or treatment in an out-patient clinic with intravenous therapy (including vasodilators, positive inotropic agents, vasopressors or diuretics) for worsening HF within 12 months prior to screening. Be or must have been diagnosed within the previous 12 months in NYHA class III or IV or INTERMACS class 4, 5, 6 or 7, and at the time of inclusion, must be at least in NYHA class II or greater. If in NYHA class II, 2 or more HF worsening events or NT-ProBNP > 1000 pg/mL requiring hospitalization or outpatient IV therapy during the prior 12 months are required.
  7. Use of ACE inhibitor and/or ARB or sacubitril/valsartan (Entresto™); and beta blocker, for at least 3 months prior to screening visit, unless intolerant or contraindicated.
  8. Stable dosing of ACE inhibitor or ARB or sacubitril/valsartan (Entresto™) and beta blocker, aldosterone blocker, and diuretics for at least one month prior to screening visit, defined as ≤50% change in total dose of each agent.
  9. Willing and able to give written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Women who are pregnant, confirmed by a positive urine or serum hCG laboratory test at screening.
  2. Women of child-bearing potential without a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at screening or who are not practicing a reliable form of birth control. Women who are postmenopausal (12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea or 6 months of spontaneous amenorrhea with serum FSH level > 40 mIU/mL or 6 weeks post-surgical bilateral oophorectomy) or surgically sterile are not considered to be of child-bearing potential. Reliable contraception includes surgical sterilization, hormonal contraception, or double-barrier methods.
  3. Men refusing to exercise a reliable form of contraception unless partner is unable to conceive.
  4. Acute coronary syndrome leading to myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 90 days of screening.

  6. Patient on a cardiac transplant list or previously received any solid organ transplant.
  7. Previously underwent cardiac surgery with remodeling procedure, left ventricular assist device placement or cardiomyoplasty. This exclusion does not apply to patients who underwent ventricularplasty without placements device >1 year ago.
  8. Patient has undergone cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) within 6 months (180 days) prior to screening.
  9. Severe uncontrolled HF requiring need for intravenous diuretics or inotropic support within 1 month prior to screening.
