Bioheart Announces Clinical Trials in India

SUNRISE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Bioheart, Inc. (OTCQB: BHRT) announced today that they have begun two clinical trials in India including the first ever combination stem cell trial in the world. The first cardiac patient has successfully been enrolled and treated in India using AdipoCell™ or adipose derived stem cells. The second trial will involve the combination of AdipoCell and MyoCell® or muscle derived stem cells for congestive heart failure patients. AdipoCell may help to promote angiogenesis or new blood vessel formation in ischemic tissue while MyoCell may help to promote myogenesis or new muscle formation.

Himanshu Bansal, MD, the study manager, said, "With India's population and growing middle class the opportunities with Bioheart are limitless and we have many patients in India who can benefit from regenerative medicine and the Bioheart products. Conducting the first ever combination stem cell trial in the world will provide insights into future treatments."

The trials are fully funded by Bioheart and Revita Lifesciences (http://www.revitalife.co.in/). The first patient has been treated in India at the Yatharth Hospital at Noida (http://www.yatharthwellness.com/). This study will complement the data completed in the ANGEL trial on patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). All patients will receive delivery into the damaged areas of the heart using the MyoCath® Catheter. Data endpoints will include safety, exercise capacity, quality of life, and ejection fraction at 3 months and 6 months.

"Every week Bioheart is receiving interest from around the globe and conducting trials in India is another example of our team answering that call," said Kristin Comella, Bioheart's Chief Science Officer. "Bioheart therapies are now being utilized in over a dozen countries around the globe."
