Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the end stage of lower extremity peripheral vascular disease (PVD) in which severe obstruction of blood flow results in ischemic rest pain, ulcers and/or gangrene, and a significant risk of limb loss. This open-label, single-arm feasibility study evaluated the safety and therapeutic effectiveness of autologous bone marrow cell (aBMC) concentrate in revascularization of CLI patients utilizing a rapid point-of-care device. Seventeen (17) no-option CLI patients with ischemic rest pain were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cell (BM-MNC) transplantation in the treatment of lower limb ischemia is becoming established, although common treatment protocols are not yet agreed upon. We hypothesized that bone marrow mobilization with Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor (G-CSF) improves the safety and effectiveness of cellular therapy. METHODS: 44 patients were randomly assigned to receive two injections of G-CSF (300 μg) prior to BM-MNC transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Critical limb ischemia is a manifestation of peripheral arterial disease characterized by insufficient arterial blood flow for maintaining tissue viability in the lower extremities. Therapeutic angiogenesis is used for peripheral arterial disease patients who are not candidates for surgical revascularization or radiological intervention. There is accumulating evidence for the beneficial impact of autologous bone marrow mononuclear cell transplantation for treatment of critical limb ischemia in humans...

It is suggested that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can be used in the preventive or therapeutic management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA); however, controversial results have been reported. Here, we examined the effects of a decrease in the n-6/n-3 PUFA ratio on RA using fat-1 transgenic mice. First, we tested whether fat-1 expression modulated signaling pathways in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) stimulated with tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). TNF-α activated p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and increased phosphorylation of the signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 in wild type (WT) FLSs but not in fat-1 FLSs...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease is a major health problem, and in about 1% to 2% of patients the disease progresses to critical limb ischaemia (CLI). In a substantial number of patients with CLI, no effective treatment option other than amputation is available and around a quarter of these patients will require a major amputation during the following year. This is an update of the review first published in 2011. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effectiveness and safety of local intramuscular transplantation of autologous adult bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNCs) as a treatment for critical limb ischaemia (CLI)...

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is recognized as a public health issue because of its prevalence, functional limitations, and increased risk of systemic ischemic events. Current treatments for claudication, the primary symptom in patients with PAD, have limitations. Cells identified using cytosolic enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) may benefit patients with severe PAD but has not been studied in patients with claudication. PACE is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted by the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network to assess the safety and efficacy of autologous bone marrow-derived ALDH(br) cells delivered by direct intramuscular injections in 80 patients with symptom-limiting intermittent claudication...

SKG/Jcl (SKG) mice spontaneously develop T cell-mediated autoimmune arthritis and may be an effective model for studying human rheumatoid arthritis. We sought to confirm that arthritis in SKG mice was caused by stem cell disorders. We induced systemic arthritis in normal C57/BL6 (B6) mice (H-2(b) type) by injecting lineage-negative (lin(-)) immature cells isolated from bone marrow cells (BMCs) of SKG mice (H-2(d) type) directly into bone cavities. Twenty weeks later, we analyzed arthritis scores, hematoxylin-eosin (H-E) staining and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) staining in ankle joints, H-2 type of hematolymphoid and osteoblast-like cells, serum levels of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) and percentages of CD4(+) T cells and osteoblast-like cells expressing receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL) in recipient mice...

Although the cyclooxygenase metabolites PGs are known to be involved in the progression of arthritis, the role of PGD2 remains unclear. In this study, we evaluated the contribution of signaling mediated through a PGD2 receptor, chemoattractant receptor-homologous molecule expressed on Th2 cells (CRTH2), in the progression of adjuvant-induced joint inflammation. Injection of CFA into the ankle joint stimulated PGD2 production and induced paw swelling in both CRTH2-naive (WT) and CRTH2(-/-) mice. CRTH2(-/-) mice presented more severe arthritic manifestations than did WT mice...

OBJECTIVE: Bone marrow cell therapy (BMCT) for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) is a potential treatment in candidates with poor options for standard revascularization procedures. Whereas clinical trials are ongoing, there are few comparative data to assess its efficacy compared with bypass. METHODS: Patients with poor revascularization options underwent BMCT between 2011 and 2013. Outcomes were compared with those of a cohort of CLI patients undergoing infrainguinal bypass thought to be at high risk for graft failure (tissue loss, a tibial target, and a previous endovascular treatment or bypass)...

BACKGROUND AIMS: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of autologous bone marrow mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) on symptoms and perfusion indices in severely symptomatic patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) without further option for endovascular or surgical revascularization. METHODS: Only patients with severe symptomatic PAD (Fontaine class IIb-IV, Rutherford category 3-6) not amenable for revascularization were treated. Bone marrow from both cristae iliacae was harvested; MNCs were isolated by the Ficoll density-gradient method and transplanted by means of intra-arterial and intramuscular injection in the index limb...
