Original announcement: P3 Trial of MSB's Cell Therapy in CHF Completes Recruitment

Mesoblast announced that it has completed patient recruitment in the events-driven Phase 3 trial of its product candidate Revascor (MPC-150-IM) for advanced chronic heart failure. The Phase 3 trial is evaluating whether Revascor reduces recurrent non-fatal heart failure-related major adverse cardiac events (HF-MACE) and prevents or delays terminal cardiac events (TCEs), defined as cardiovascular death, heart transplant or placement of an artificial device, over at least 12 months. In a previous Phase 2 trial, a single dose of Revascor prevented any TCEs or hospitalization events over three years in a similar patient cohort. There are over 8m patients with heart failure in the US alone, with 15-20% refractory to all existing medicines.
