Randomized Clinical Trial of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in the Treatment of Pts With ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to establish safety and feasibility of utilizing Adipose-Derived Stem and Regenerative Cells (ADRC's) in patients who have suffered a ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction.
Drug: Injection of ADRC'sOther: Injection of Placebo
Subjects who have coronary artery disease and have suffered a ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction will be evaluated for eligibility in this study. Eligible subjects will undergo standard treatment after admission to the hospital and will then undergo liposuction under local anesthesia, after which ADRC's will be isolated from the lipoaspirate. According to randomization subjects will receive either ADRC's or placebo.
