Bioheart stem cells
Bioheart, announced today that it has completed the world's first combination stem cell treatment with Magnum Cell Therapies (Magnum) in Honduras. A patient with congestive heart failure has been treated with a combination of AdipoCell™ or adipose derived stem cells and MyoCell® or muscle derived stem cells.

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. The cells were delivered directly into the damaged areas of the heart using the MyoCath® Catheter.

The patient was treated at the Honduras Medical Centerwith Managing Director Dr. Ricardo Aguilar. The procedure was led by cardiologists Dr. Haroldo Lopez and Dr. Raul Marenco.

"We are bringing new regenerative therapies to many patients around the world. We believe that this new method of cell combination is the best therapy available to patients suffering from heart failure." said Kristin Comella, Bioheart's Chief Scientific Officer.

"Magnum has brought cutting edge regenerative therapies to Honduras, we are seeing excellent results so far with stem cell therapy and we are thrilled to expand our services." said Dr. Rene Fiallos, Magnum's Chief Medical Officer.
