The Belgian biotechnology company, Cardio3 BioSciences (C3BS), a leader in the discovery and development of regenerative and protective therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, today announces that the final results of its Phase II clinical trial of C3BS-CQR-1 is will be presented at the late breaking clinical trial session at the European Society of Cardiology 2012 Heart Failure Congress in Belgrade, Serbia taking place on May 19-22.
André Terzic, M.D., Ph.D, Director at Center of Regenerative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, the co-lead investigator on the trial, will present new final follow up data on the Company’s stem cell therapy for heart failure, C3BS-CQR-1, which is based on “Cardiopoiesis” proprietary technology. The presentation will be held on Sunday, May 20th in Belgrade, Serbia.
Dr. Christian Homsy, CEO of Cardio3 BioSciences, said: “Being selected to present the final follow-up data in the late breaking clinical trial session at this prestigious cardiology congress highlights the quality of our technology and reiterates our belief in C3BS-CQR-1 as a potential treatment for patients with heart failure, a condition with a significant unmet medical need. We look forward to advancing the product into Phase III.”
Cardio3 BioSciences is a Belgian leading biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of regenerative and protective therapies for the treatment of cardiac diseases. The company was founded in 2007 and is based in the Walloon region of Belgium. Cardio3 BioSciences leverages research collaborations in the US and in Europe with Mayo Clinic and the Cardiovascular Center Aalst, Belgium.
The Company’s lead product candidate C3BS-CQR-1 is an innovative pharmaceutical product consisting of autologous cardiac progenitor stem cells. C3BS-CQR-1 is based on ground breaking research conducted at Mayo Clinic that allowed discovery of cardiopoiesis, a process to mimic in adult stem cells the natural signals triggered in the early stages of life during the cardiac tissue development. Cardio3 BioSciences has also developed C-Cath®, the next-generation injection catheter with superior efficiency of delivery of bio therapeutic agents into the myocardium.
