Bioheart, Inc. is committed to the discovery and development of autologous cellular therapies to treat a variety of degenerative diseases, as well as the continuation of our ongoing research for the treatment of heart failure, cardiovascular and perioheral vascular disease. 


MyoCell SDF-1 



Bioheart’s lead product candidate is MyoCell®, a muscle stem cell therapy that is intended to improve cardiac function months or even years after a patient has suffered severe heart damage due to a heart attack.

MyoCell SDF-1 has received approval from the FDA to begin human clinical trials and is intended to be an improvement to MyoCell.

The MyoCath is a disposable needle injection catheter used for the delivery of biologic solutions to a targeted treatment site within the myocardium, the inner wall of the heart. 

Adipose (fat) tissue is readily available and has been shown to be rich in microvascular, myogenic and angiogenic cells.  Bioheart has recently applied to the FDA to begin trials using adipose derived stem cells or AdipoCell™ in patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy.  


The Bioheart Vision
Our vision is to improve the quality of patients’ lives, while reducing hospitalizations and healthcare costs. 
Bioheart is and will continue to be recognized by physicians and patients as the world’s leader in providing 
innovative treatment and management of patients with severe cardiovascular and peripheral vascular 
disease.We are also focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cell therapies 
for the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Business Strategy

 Our principal objective is to become a leading regenerative medicine company that discovers, develops and commercializes novel, autologous cell therapies, and related devices, for the treatment and improved care of patients suffering from chronic and acute heart damage as well as lower limb ischemia. Our secondary objective is the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cell therapies for the treatment of degenerative diseases.  The number of heart failure patients is expected to increase from 25 million worldwide today to over 50 million in five years. Our focus is on serving these patients. To achieve our primary objective, we plan to pursue the following strategies:

  • - Obtain initial regulatory approval of MyoCell and/or MyoCell SDF-1 by targeting patients with severe heart damage. 
    - Continue existing studies with adipose derived stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells.
    - Continue to develop our pipeline of cell-based therapies and related devices for the treatment of chronic and acute heart damage. 
    - Develop our sales and marketing capabilities. 
    - Continue to refine our MyoCell and MyoCell SDF-1 cell culturing processes.
    - Expand and enhance our intellectual property rights.
    - License, acquire and/or develop complementary products and technologies.
