ALLSTAR Phase I/II
The ALLogeneic Heart STem Cells to Achieve Myocardial Regeneration (ALLSTAR) trial is a Phase I/II trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of lead therapeutic candidate, CAP-1002 – Capricor’s allogeneic, off-the-shelf, cardiosphere-derived cell product. The trial is being sponsored by Capricor and is led by Drs. Timothy Henry and Rajendra Makkar of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute. The trial began enrolling in late 2012 and is expected to enroll 314 patients in total (Phase I n=14, Phase II n=260-300) at 25-35 sites across the U.S.
The Phase I portion of the trial was funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, and the Phase II portion of the trial is supported in large part by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).
