24 May Cellular Logistics founder, Dr. Amish Raval, interviewed on WISC channel 3000 about stem cell trials at UW-Madison
MADISON, Wis. – Doctors at UW Health are involved in a clinical trial using stem cells for the treatment of heart failure.
The CardiAMP therapy involves withdrawing a patient’s bone marrow. The bone marrow is then processed on-site to separate the stem cells from the plasma. The patient’s own stem cells are then injected into damaged areas of the heart using a catheter.
“It is hopeful that we can improve things. I don’t think we can necessarily cure the damage, but I think we can improve things,” said Dr. Amish Raval, director of cardiovascular clinical research at UW Health.
