Clinical Trial for Patients Who Have Had a Recent Hamstring Injury
 

. The Stem Cell Center of the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Medical CenterThe Stem Cell Center of the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Medical Center in Houston, Texas, is actively recruiting patients for FDA-approved clinical studies investigating the use of stem cells in aiding with recovery of a hamstring injury.
 
A hamstring injury occurs when you strain or pull one of your hamstring muscles — the group of three muscles that run along the back of your thigh.

You may be more likely to get a hamstring injury if you play soccer, basketball, football, tennis or a similar sport that involves sprinting with sudden stops and starts. Hamstring injury can occur in runners and in dancers as well.

Main Inclusion Criteria

The Stem Cell Center is actively enrolling patients who:

  • must be between the ages of 20 and 60 years old.
  • must have pain in the affected limb at rest.
  • Treatment must occur within 10 days of injury.

Enrollment Information

If you are a patient who wishes to be considered for this study, please call us at toll free at 1-866-924-STEM (7836), or complete our secure online Patient Information Form.

If you are a physician and would like to refer a patient for consideration, please contact a study coordinator at the above number or 832-355-9405.
