Experimental Regenerative Therapy for Heart Failure Lowers Major Cardiac Events & Death but Not Hospitalizations

Mesoblast’s (ASX: MSB; Nasdaq: MESO) DREAM-HF clinical trial investigates regenerative therapy for heart failure that led to a reduction in major cardiac events and death, however not a reduction in hospitalization for heart failure events.  Focused on adults with heart failure, the study team recently disclosed the results from a randomized, controlled Phase 3 clinical trial of investigational stem cell therapy called rexlemestrocel-L in 565 patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II and class III chronic heart failure (CHF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Presented recently as a late breaking presentation at the American Heart Association (AHA) annual Scientific Sessions in an event titled ‘Building on the Foundations of Treatment: Advances in Heart Failure Therapy’ Dr. Emerson Perin, co-principal investigator and Medical Director of Texas Heart Institute as well as Clinical Professor, Baylor College of Medicine, presented new results from the study evidencing a significant relationship between presence of systemic inflammation as quantified by high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and treatment benefit with the investigational stem cell therapy...
