Research Study for Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia Caused by Severe Peripheral Arterial Disease
|Protocol Title||Vascular Disease - Research Study for Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia Caused by Severe Peripheral Arterial Disease|
|Summary||This research study is testing a new investigational device called MarrowStim™ PAD Kit. This strategy is designed to improve blood flow in legs with blocked arteries by attempting to treat diseased blood vessels. Because of the location and extent of the blockages in certain individuals, standard treatments such as surgical bypass (insertion of a vein or synthetic graft to redirect blood flow around the blockage) and angioplasty (insertion of a balloon through the artery to open the blockage) will not improve blood flow to the leg, and amputation is the only alternative.
The potential benefits of MarrowStim™ treatment include relief of pain, healing of ischemic ulcers, and limb salvage.
Only those patients meeting the pre-defined approved inclusion/exclusion criteria are eligible for this clinical trial.
|Therapeutic Area||Vascular Disease|
|Age Range||21 to No upper limit|
|Purpose||The purpose of this FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved research is to study the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment using a patient's own concentrated bone marrow aspirate in those suffering from severe peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The concentrated bone marrow aspirate is prepared using the MarrowStim™ Concentration Kit.
Concentrated bone marrow aspirate contains mononuclear cells that may have the potential to treat vascular structures. Study participants will receive multiple injections of concentrated bone marrow aspirate harvested from their iliac crest during ischemic limb surgery.
