Bioheart Makes Breakthrough in Critical Limb Ischemia Therapy with Stem Cells Obtained from Fat Tissue
Date:12/21/2009

ural repair of diseased vessels and tissues by using the patient's own cells. Bioheart's TGI system is able to be used in a number of cardiovascular treatments to aid in the recovery of a normal life. That is Bioheart's goal."

"The University Hospital Ostrava is extremely excited to be a part of this cutting-edge technology and welcomes the studies,'' said Dr. Vaclav Prochazka, MD, PhD, MSc, Head Physician of the Department of Interventional Neuroradiology and Angiology, Vice Director for Research and Development at University Hospital Ostrava, Czech Republic, who has been utilizing the cells for treating his patients. "We believe that this will bring new hope to many patients suffering from critical limb ischemia."

Recent studies have identified adipose tissue as an alternate source of stem cells. The procedure for getting adipose derived stem cells from the patient is simple and easily tolerable by the patient even immediately following a heart attack. Fat tissue, itself, is plentiful within the patient's own body and there is an abundance of stem cells within fat tissue. The stem cells can be separated from the fat cells very quickly with the TGI system, making treatment after an event, like a heart attack, efficient. That efficiency contributes to the success of the treatment.

In contrast, the alternative procedure is to use bone marrow to obtain stem cells, which is extremely painful and often yields a low volume of stem cells.

Bioheart is adding the lower limb ischemia treatment to its product portfolio, which seeks to eliminate cardiovascular problems through regeneration and prevention.

Bioheart's TGI 1200 System:

It is a fully-automated, point-of-care system that recovers potentially regenerative stem cells from a patient's own adipose tissue in about an hour, with minimal operator intervention. Adipose tissue is collected from the patient's abdomen and processed in the T
