Pfizer-Novoheart Results Announced at the ISSCR Annual Meeting 2018

Novoheart announced today that a presentation was delivered on June 22nd, 2018, entitled “Modeling Cardiac Dysfunction of Friedreich’s Ataxia Using Ventricular Sheets, Tissues and Chambers Engineered from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells,” at the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research in Melbourne, Australia. The presentation includes data from research conducted with Pfizer Inc. on the first 3D engineered human cardiac tissue disease model of Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA), a neurodegenerative disease in which patients most often die of heart complications. The 3D human cardiac tissue constructs of Friedreich’s ataxia was developed using Novoheart’s proprietary MyHeartTM Platform and the novel disease model captures key clinical symptoms seen in FRDA patients, including electrical and contractile dysfunction of the heart, thereby providing a highly effective human screening and discovery platform for developing novel therapeutics.
