The Future of Regenerative Heart Therapy
Individuals diagnosed with heart failure have limited therapeutic options. Avery Therapeutics wants to change that. While current treatments involve pharmacological intervention or surgery, such as a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), long-term prognosis remains poor and heart transplants are limited. We are the first to create a robust, multiple cell type, tissue engineered construct for treatment of heart failure. The advantages of the tissue engineered construct are numerous. MyCardia™ is a biologically active product that provides structural support for cell growth, which results in re-vascularization, increased myocardial blood flow, nutrient transport and sustained functional improvements that result in improved quality of life metrics.
