Safety Study of Autologous Umbilical Cord Blood Cells for Treatment of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Phase I Safety Study of Autologous Umbilical Cord Blood Derived Mononuclear Cells During Surgical Stage II Palliation of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Doctors at 6 children’s medical centers in OK, PA, MN, CA, and CO are seeking pediatric patients with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) to trial a cell-based regenerative therapy treatment of autologous umbilical cord blood (UCB) cells into the right ventricle of HLHS children undergoing a scheduled Glenn surgical procedure. The investigators hope this treatment using the individual’s own stem cell-rich umbilical cord blood can be used to strengthen the muscle of the right side of their heart. The treatment, a single injection to the heart at the time of their surgery, will then be followed up on at 1, 3, and 6 months and up to 2 years.
- Up to 18 months of age
- Have a bank of autologous cord blood product meeting study criteria
- Mother’s serology test results are negative for HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C
- Have undergone Stage I surgical palliation and undergoing planned Stage II palliative Glenn surgery
THE STUDY INVOLVES:
- Prescreening to confirm eligibility of the patient to participate.
- Scheduled Stage II palliative Glenn surgery
- The treatment, a single injection to the heart at the time of their surgery, will then be followed up on at 1, 3, and 6 months and up to 2 years.
