Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
The Phase I study consists of a Phase Ia portion and a Phase Ib portion. The Phase Ia portion (N=14 subjects) consists of an open-label, single-arm, study design. The potentially conducted Phase Ib portion of the study (N=28 subjects) consists of a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study design. The Phase Ia portion is an open-label, dose escalation of Allogeneic Cardiosphere-Derived Cells (CDCs).

(Placebo Comparator)
The placebo study arm only applies to the Phase Ib portion of the study design. The Phase Ia portion (N=14 subjects) consists of an open-label, single-arm, study design.

Additional Information

Official title A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase I Study of the Safety of Multi-vessel Intra-coronary Delivery of Allogeneic Human Cardiosphere-Derived Stem Cells in Patients With Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM)
Principal investigator Rajendra (Raj) Makkar, MD
Description Eligible subjects will undergo sequential intracoronary infusion of CAP-1002 or placebo in up to three coronary arteries supplying three major cardiac territories to the heart (anterior, lateral, inferior/posterior). After completion of the screening procedures, Phase Ia subjects will receive CAP-1002 administered via intracoronary infusion in a dose escalation, stepwise manner. Phase Ia subjects will be followed at Week 2 and at Months 1, 2, 3, 6 and 12 after CAP-1002 infusion. The first fourteen (14) subjects will receive intracoronary infusion of CAP-1002 in an open-label fashion (Phase Ia). Once all 14 subjects in the Phase Ia have reached the primary safety endpoint (1 month visit), the DSMB will conduct a review of the Phase Ia data and recommend whether to proceed with enrollment of the next 28 subjects in the Phase Ib.
