Dr. Inmaculada Concepción Herrera Arroyo
The Cell Therapy Unit centres its main activity on clinical research in this area by carrying out different clinical trials. This Unit is currently conducting clinical trials with adult stem cells in autologous bone marrow in acute myocardial infarction, chronic ischemic heart disease, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and chronic critical ischemia of the lower limbs. From 2011, we will be in a position to produce mesenchyme cells in GMP conditions for the initiation of new clinical trials with these cells.
At the same time, we are carrying out several translational studies both in vitro and with animal models, particularly in therapeutic angiogenesis of mononuclear bone marrow cells.
