Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether transendocardial delivery of allogeneic human bone marrow-derived MPCs (rexlemestrocel-L) is effective in the treatment of chronic heart failure due to LV systolic dysfunction.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Heart Failure Biological: Allogeneic Mesenchymal Precursor Cells (MPC) Other: Sham Comparator Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a single transendocardial delivery in the cardiac catheterization laboratory of human bone marrow-derived allogeneic MPCs (rexlemestrocel-L) for improvement in clinical outcomes (HF-MACE), preventing further adverse cardiac remodeling (LVESV and LVEDV), and increasing exercise capacity (6MWT) in patients with chronic HF due to LV systolic dysfunction of either ischemic or nonischemic etiology who have received optimal medical/revascularization therapy.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 600 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Double-blind, Randomized, Sham-procedure-controlled, Parallel-Group Efficacy and Safety Study of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Precursor Cells (Rexlemestrocel-L) in Chronic Heart Failure Due to LV Systolic Dysfunction (Ischemic or Nonischemic) Dream HF-1
Actual Study Start Date : January 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Allogeneic Mesenchymal Precursor Cells
Participants randomly assigned to treatment will undergo a single index cardiac catheterization involving transendocardial delivery of rexlemestrocel-L into the myocardium at a cell injection center by an interventional cardiology team not involved with review or assessment of subsequent study results.
Biological: Allogeneic Mesenchymal Precursor Cells (MPC)
Rexlemestrolcel-L consists of human bone marrow-derived allogeneic MPCs isolated from bone mononuclear cells with anti-STRO-3 antibodies, expanded ex vivo,and cryopreserved
Other Names:
  • MPC
  • rexlemestrocel-L

Sham Comparator: Control Treatment
Participants randomly assigned to control treatment will undergo a single cardiac catheterization involving a scripted sham cardiac mapping and cell delivery procedure at a cell injection center by an interventional cardiology team not involved with review or assessment of subsequent study results.
Other: Sham Comparator
The sham procedure will be staged to script and will not include actual cardiac mapping or delivery of rexlemestrocel-L.
