The Stem Cell Center performs clinical and pre-clinical research in the specific area of cardiovascular disease.
We are currently enrolling patients with the following cardiovascular condition:
If you are a patient or physician referring an interested patient into a research protocol there are a few important considerations:
- The primary concern for any investigation must be the safety of all participants.
- The Stem Cell Center conducts clinical trials in strict accordance with protocols which have been approved by institutional governing agencies including the FDA, and St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital Institutional Review Board.
- The Stem Cell Center is dedicated to conducting relevant, well designed, and safe clinical studies. The protocols, therefore, are very strict and no exceptions can be made regarding the criteria that are used to include or exclude patients.
- Patients are not given monetary compensation for enrollment into the different studies. Once enrolled in the trial, patients are not charged for any therapy or monitoring that is directly related to the research.
We are a network of physicians, scientists, and support staff dedicated to studying stem cell therapy for treating heart disease. The goals of the Network are to complete research studies that will potentially lead to more effective treatments for patients with cardiovascular disease, and to share knowledge quickly with the healthcare community.
