BioCardia Announces Timing of the Next Data Safety Monitoring Board Meeting for the CardiAMP Cell Therapy in Heart Failure Pivotal Study

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCardia®, Inc. [Nasdaq: BCDA], a developer of cellular and cell-derived therapeutics for the treatment of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases today announced that the next Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) meeting for the CardiAMP Cell Therapy Trial for Heart Failure is scheduled to take place on July 12th. The Company expects the FDA’s response to its adaptive statistical analysis plan supplement early to mid-June and anticipates approval of the plan and completion of all tasks to implement the plan, including all data monitoring, in advance of the DSMB meeting.

About the CardiAMP Cell Therapy Program
CardiAMP Cell Therapy – designated as an FDA Breakthrough Device – uses a patient’s own (autologous) bone marrow cells delivered to the heart in a minimally invasive, catheter-based procedure to potentially stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The CardiAMP Cell Therapy Heart Failure Trial is the first multicenter clinical trial of a stem cell therapy to prospectively screen for stem cell therapeutic potency in order to improve patient outcomes. CardiAMP Cell Therapy incorporates three proprietary elements not previously utilized in investigtional cardiac cell therapy: a pre-procedural diagnostic for patient selection, a high target dosage of cells, and a proprietary delivery system that has been shown to be safer than other intramyocardial delivery systems and exponentially more successful in cell retention. The trial is supported by the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

About BioCardia®
BioCardia, Inc., headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, is a developer of two biotherapeutic platforms – the CardiAMP autologous bone marrow derived mononuclear cell therapy for cardiovascular indications, and the NK1R+ allogenic bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cell therapies for cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.  These platforms underlie four product candidates, each with the potential to meaningfully benefit millions of patients. Three of these investigational therapies are enabled by the Company’s proprietary biotherapeutic delivery platforms, which the Company also selectively licenses to other biotherapeutic development firms.
