Bioheart, Inc. and Global Stem Cells, Inc. Announce New Clinical Site in Mexico

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2013

Bioheart Inc., a biotech company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cell therapies, has announced that it has initiated a new clinical site in collaboration with Global Stem Cell Group, Inc. in Cozumel, Mexico. The two companies successfully treated their first congestive heart failure patient at the new clinical site last week, using Bioheart’s AdipoCell (adipose derived stem cells).

The therapy involved the use of stem cells derived from the patient’s own fat (adipose tissue) obtained using liposuction. The recovered stem cells were injected into the patients’ heart with Bioheart’s MyoCath® needle injection catheter which allows for introduction of the cells directly into the heart without invasive surgery.

Rafael Moguel, M.D., Head of the Cardiac Program at the Centro Medico de Cozumel, was the treating interventional cardiologist for the Bioheart therapy procedure.

"Our center is very excited to participate in the cutting edge programs at Bioheart," Moguel says. "We can offer new hope to patients suffering from debilitating diseases by utilizing regenerative medicine, and delivering them non-invasively into the heart."

The MyoCath catheter was introduced using a radial artery approach, the first such documented stem cell case using this delivery method. The benefit of a radial artery approach is that it does not require the patient to lie flat for up to six hours, as in a femoral artery approach. Patients are able to sit up, walk and eat immediately following the procedure, and the risk of internal bleeding is eliminated.

Bioheart and Global Stem Cells Group have designed several different protocols to be utilized at the center in Cozumel, offering treatments to patients for a variety of different indications.
