Primary Outcome Measures:
  • major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 24 months ]
    cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), ischemic stroke, need for revascularization or , procedure-related complications (: pericardial effusion/cardiac tamponade, vascular complications and sustained ventricular arrhythmias).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The change in the myocardial perfusion defect at baseline versus follow-up measured by Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). Treadmill test, and clinical evaluation (CCS, nº angina episodes/month, nº nitroglycerin /month, Quality of life by seattle questionnaire)

Enrollment: 28
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: February 2012
Primary Completion Date: May 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: selected CD133+cells
Transendocardial injection of selected CD133+cells
Biological: Selected CD 133+ cells
Endothelial progenitor cell CD 133
No Intervention: no injection
Boths groups were treated with G-CSF, underwent an apheresis and NOGA mapping

Detailed Description:
The PROGENITOR trial is a randomized, double-blinded, multicenter controlled trial including patients with Canadian cardiovascular society angina classification (CCS): II-IV and ischemic zones by SPECT but without any option for revascularization. Primary endpoint was to assess the safety and feasibility of transendocardial injection of selected CD133+cells. All patients were treated for 4-days with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and underwent apheresis. CD133+ cells were selected with CliniMacs system and were injected transendocardially guided by the NOGA XP system.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Functional class II- IV angina on maximal medical therapy
  • Myocardial Ischemia/viability demonstrated by a reversible perfusion defect by means imaging techniques
  • Patients should not be amenable to any type of revascularization procedure (percutaneous or surgical)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Age <18 years or >75 years.
  • Atrial fibrillation.
  • LV thrombus
  • Acute myocardial infarction in the last 3 months
  • An LV wall thickness of <8 mm at the target site for cell injection
  • A history of malignancy in the last 5 years
