CONCERT-HF (NCT02501811) | Enrollment Closed

This is a phase II, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial designed to assess feasibility, safety, and effect of autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and c-kit+ cardiac stem cells (CSCs) both alone and in combination (Combo), compared to placebo (cell-free Plasmalyte-A medium) as well as each other, administered by transendocardial injection in subjects with ischemic cardiomyopathy.

Cross-Seal™ IDE Trial (NCT03756558)

Cross-Seal™IDE Trial:  Prospective, Multi-Center, SingleArm Studyof theCross-Seal™ Suture Mediated Vascular Closure Device System

This study evaluates the safety and effectiveness of the Cross-Seal vascular closure device in gaining post procedure hemostasis in subjects undergoing interventional procedures requiring an 8 to 18 french size introducer sheath. The Cross-Seal device is a VCD intended for use in catheterization laboratories following percutaneous cardiac or peripheral procedures that use the retrograde common femoral artery access route for large bore (8‐18F ID) interventional devices. The function of Cross-Seal is to percutaneously close the puncture in the artery wall (arteriotomy) through which the catheters were inserted for the procedure. The study is being conducted to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of Cross-Seal in achieving hemostasis in femoral arterial access sites in subjects undergoing percutaneous transcatheter interventional procedures using a large-bore procedure sheath.

DREAM-HF 1 (NCT02032004) | Enrollment Closed

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether transendocardial delivery of allogeneic human bone marrow-derived MPCs (rexlemestrocel-L) is effective in the treatment of chronic heart failure due to LV systolic dysfunction.

Heart FID (NCT03037931)

Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of Injectafer® (Ferric Carboxymaltose) as Treatment for Heart Failure with Iron Deficiency

PI: Reynolds Delgado, MD

MSCs vs Standard of Care in Cardiomyopathy (NCT02962661)

Randomized 3-Arm Trial with Standard of Care Alone vs either Intravenous Infusion or Transendocardial Injection of Allogeneic Bone Marrow Derived Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs) plus Standard of Care in Patients with Anthracycline-Associated Cardiomyopathy 2015-0835

To demonstrate the safety of allogeneic human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) administered by intravenous infusion and transendocardial injection in patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and heart failure secondary to chemotherapy with anthracyclines.

LESS-VT | FLExAbility Sensor Enabled Substrate Targeted Ablation for the Reduction of VT Study (NCT03490201)

This clinical investigation is intended to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of ventricular ablation therapy using the FlexAbility Sensor Enabled Ablation Catheter in patients with drug-refractory monomorphic ventricular tachycardia in whom ventricular tachycardia recurs despite antiarrhythmic drug therapy or when antiarrhythmic drugs are not tolerated or desired.

SENECA (NCT02509156) | Enrollment Closed

The primary purpose of this study is to examine the safety and feasibility of delivering allogeneic human mesenchymal stem cells (allo-MSCs) by transendocardial injection to cancer survivors with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction secondary to anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy (AIC).

The secondary purpose of this study is to obtain preliminary evidence for therapeutic efficacy of allo-MSCs delivered by transendocardial injection to cancer survivors with LV dysfunction secondary to AIC.

Solve CRT (NCT02922036)

Stimulation Of the Left Ventricular Endocardium for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy in Non-Responders and Previously Untreatable Patients (SOLVE CRT)

This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, controlled, double blinded, pivotal trial to study the safety and efficacy of the WiSE-CRT System for Cardiac Re-synchronization Therapy.  The WiSE-CRT System is an implantable cardiac pacing system capable of delivering pacing energy to the left ventricle of the heart without using a pacing lead.
