TEVA C41750/3100 (DREAM-HF) Study


  • Heart Failure

Study Name:

A Double-Blind, Randomized, Sham-Procedure-Controlled, Parallel-Group Efficacy and Safety Study of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Precursor Cells (CEP-41750) in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure Due to Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction of Either Ischemic or Nonischemic Etiology


Phase 3


This research study is designed to test the investigational use of CEP-41750 (mesenchymal precursor cells) in patients with chronic heart failure. Researchers will examine whether injecting the cells into heart muscle with a specific type of needle can help restore heart muscle function.

The study will compare CEP-41750 to the standard treatment (standard of care for heart failure). Participants will receive either CEP-41750 or undergo a partial procedure and will not receive CEP-41750.

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • 18 to 80 years of age
  • Diagnosis of chronic heart failure of ischemic or non-ischemic etiology
  • On stable, optimally tolerated dosages of heart failure therapies
  • On a stable, outpatient, oral diuretic dosing regimen
  • Not a candidate for either percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass graft surgery

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • New York Heart Association Functional Class I or Functional Class IV symptoms
  • Acute myocardial infarction within one month before screening procedures
  • Unstable angina pectoris within one month before screening procedures
  • Peri-/postpartum cardiomyopathy
  • Ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke within three months prior to enrollment

Please see complete list of inclusion and exclusion criteria.
