Peripheral Vascular Disease

Stem cells from bone marrow, cord blood, fat and from blood vessels are being investigated as possible treatments for peripheral vascular disease. Click on the link provided to find out more about each trial. It remains too early to know which approach will be most suitable. We need evidence collected in clinical trials to determine if a proposed stem cell treatment is both safe and effective.

  • Stem Cells for Peripheral Vascular Disease Location: Australia
    Overview: This trial aims to compare the effect of the patient's own blood stem in treating patients with severe peripheral arterial disease. The trial is being conducted at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne and proposes to recruit 20 subjects. The subjects will be randomly assigned to two groups. They will either receive a single injection of CD 34+ stem cells via the limb artery (experimental group) or a placebo injection (control group). Participants will be monitored for complications and assessed for changes in their clinical condition.
