Registry of Cell Therapy in Non-Ischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy (RECORD)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Know the risks and potential benefits of clinical studies and talk to your health care provider before participating.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Although several studies have demonstrated beneficial effects of stem cell therapy in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy, the long term benefits and predictors of response to therapy remain undefined. The aim of this registry is to pool long-term clinical data in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy undergoing autologous cell therapy in an attempt to better define predictors of response to such treatment.
Condition or disease
Biological: Autologous stem cell therapy
Registry will include all patients who underwent intracoronary or intramyocardial cell therapy as a part of clinical trials performed at UMC Ljubljana from January 2005 until January 2018. Patients will be followed on regular basis in a dedicated heart failure outpatient clinic, clinical data will be collected and stored in a secure central database. Data will be analyzed in periodic intervals by an independent Data monitoring board in an attempt to better define the predictors of clinical response to cell therapy in this patient population.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join a study.
