Cardiology and cardiovascular medicine applications of cell therapy

Much attention has been paid to the development of cell therapies with cardiovascular applications. According to the Institute of Cardiovascular Regeneration, more than 1,500 patients with cardiovascular diseases are treated with adult progenitor cells worldwide. Much success has been achieved in this sector and cardiovascular cell therapies are increasingly becoming viable technologies.

The primary competitors in the field of tissue engineering and cell-based therapies for cardiovascular applications are shown in the exhibit below illustrating the stages in which they have cardiology/cardiovascular applications in development.
