Top scientists meet for Global Conference on Stem Cell Therapy for Cardiovascular Diseases

w derived cells for chronic coronary disease will be presented by Dr. Vincent Pompili
  • SEISMIC: The first randomized study of myoblasts given by catheter delivery for patients with CHF, presented by Dr. Patrick Serruys

  • Next-Generation Heart Muscle Cells: Advances in Skeletal, Myocardial, Embryonic, and Bone Marrow Derived Techniques

  • A Preview of First-in-Human Studies Planned for the Coming Year

    Hundreds of the worlds leading cell therapy experts will meet to discuss the latest advances in this area.

    Warren Sherman, M.D., Conference Director, is Director of Cardiac Cell-Based Endovascular Therapies at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Sherman is a renowned clinical investigator in the field of myocardial regeneration who pioneered a technique for injecting stem cells into the heart. In Rotterdam in May 2001, he performed the first catheter-based injection of stem cells into the heart of a patient with congestive heart failure due to a previous heart attack. At Columbia University Medical Center, researchers led by Dr. Sherman are using the patients own myoblasts -- progenitor cells found in muscle -- to repair and replace injured cardiac tissue in a process called myogenesis.

    WHEN: January 17 19, 2007
    WHERE: The New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
