ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00143585
First received: September 1, 2005
Last updated: July 24, 2008
Last verified: July 2008
  Purpose

To demonstrate the clinical efficacy and safety of vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF165)when delivered by direct myocardial injection through the NOGA navigational catheter to improve myocardial perfusion in patients with severe angina pectoris for whom conventional PCI or CABG are either not possible or not ideal.Secondary objective will be to determine the effects of VEGF gene therapy on angina symptoms, patient perceived quality of life and exercise capacity


Condition Intervention Phase
Myocardial Ischemia
Procedure: intramyocardial delivery of either VEGF165 or placebo
Phase 2
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Multicentre, Randomized,Double Blind,Placebo Controlled Trial of Myocardial Angiogenesis Using VEGF165, Intramyocardial Gene Delivery in Patients With Severe Angina

Further study details as provided by St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Myocardial perfusion-stress/ rest scores(SRS),changes in summed stress scores(SSS)from baseline to 12 weeks follow up between placebo and VEGF treated groups. This analysis will be repeated at 6 months

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • symptom evaluation (CCS class, Seattle Angina Questionnaire; patient perceived Quality of Life( SF 36 questionnaire); exercise performance; major adverse cardiac events

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: June 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2007
Detailed Description:

A multicentre, double blind, placebo controlled trial to assess efficacy of VEGF and promote myocardial angiogenesis in patients with CCS III-IV angina symptoms,treated with maximal anti anginal medications who are not amenable to or not ideal candidates for conventional revascularization.
