December, 11th, 2015 – Atlanta, Georgia – Howard Leonhardt will present the BioLeonhardt Myostim www.bioleonhardt.om stem cell pump + bioelectric stimulator for heart regeneration at the 2015 World Stem Cell Summit in Atlanta December 12th 11:30am to 12:30pm at Hyatt Regency, 265 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA – Grand Hall East A-B RegMed Company Presentations Session 23-26
The BioLeonhardt MyoStim pump+stimulator is implanted in a patients abdomen. The micro pump is re-filled once a week with a cardio myogenic cocktail of stem cells, growth factors, micro RNAs and nutrient hydrogel. The pump contents are infused slowly into the damaged area of the heart over time via an infustion pacing lead. The bioelectric stimualtor causes controlled release of SDF-1, VEGF, Follistatin and Hepatocyte Growth Factor and controls the differention of cells into contractile muscle and mature blood vessels within heart scar tissue. The current translation studies are designed to prove out ability to fully regenerate a damaged heart over a 36 month course of treatment. SDF-1 is a stem cell homing factor, VEGF grows blood vessels, Follistatin grows muscle and Hepatocyte Growth Factor prevents arrhythmias.
Leonhardt Ventures, the parent of BioLeonhardt MyoStim, and its team of collaborating research scientists have been studying stem cell based regeneration of hearts since 1988 and has helped raise and put to work over $100 million to date for developing heart, cardiovascular and other organ regeneration and healing products.
BioLeonhardt MyoStim is being incubated in the Leonhardt Ventures’ Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator, Inc www.calxstars.com in Santa Monica and Santa Rosa, California.
BioLeonhardt, Leonhardt Ventures’ and the Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator are led by a team over 70 proven industry veterans- http://calxstars.com/team-cal-x/ and over 35 leading scientists – http://calxstars.com/scientific-advisory-board/.

About The 2015 World Stem Cell Summit — (WSCS 15) – http://worldstemcellsummit.com/agenda-day/december-12/ -being held at Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia is an engine for discovery, funding and commercialization. Planned by and for the stem cell and regenerative medicine community, the Summit brings global stakeholders together to solve global challenges. The goal of the summit is to accelerate the discovery and development of lifesaving cures and therapies. The summit builds a foundation to advance cell therapies by establishing a supportive environment of regulation, legislation, financing, reimbursement and patient advocacy.
