Research Medical Team Dr. Jalees Rehman

Dr. Rehman's Research The Rehman lab is currently researching the biology of endothelial progenitor cells as well as other stem and progenitor cells in the cardiovascular system. The goal is to understand the physiological role of such cells in a healthy environment as well as how diseases can impact such cells. Understanding the biology of progenitor and stem cells may lead to novel cardiovascular therapies based on the modification of endogenous cells, and thus complement current cell therapies that involve cell transplantation.

What are our current projects? “ I am looking at ways for people to grow new blood vessels (angiogenesis) using special delivery methods for genes and even using one’s own cells to convey the genes. I like to think that researchers today are working to develop the medicine for tomorrow.” Dr. March 7-12-2002

ICVBM Project #2 Recently ICVBM investigators have been experimenting with a groundbreaking technique to extract a special population of a patient’s own cells from the fat tissue using liposuction. We have found that we can select cells that are like stem cells and may soon be able to re-introduce them into the patient’s heart to enhance the growth of new blood vessels and possibly regenerate heart tissue.

Project #4 Adult Stem Cell Mediated Angiogenesis Study Dr. Murphy has enrolled five patients in the Phase I (safety) trial where patients’ own adult stem cells are extracted from the hip bone before being injected into the leg along the calf. Four additional patients are scheduled for treatment in February 2006. Current articles listed on our Website www.cmmrf.org

Why is our research so Important? “ Due to the length of time involved in developing a device like the Closer, it is necessary to think way ahead and advance research solutions to hasten clinical applications. To shorten this process, research dollars are critical. The more parallel efforts in place, the quicker solutions are found.” Dr. March 7-12-2002

Maintaining open arteries after Angioplasty One novel approach being developed and tested in the ICVBM involves the use of devices emitting ultrasound energy inside arteries following stenting to help perform gene therapy and keep such vessels open.

Early diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease Your ICVBM investigators are developing techniques that will detect early abnormalities in the blood vessels by imaging inflamed areas of blood vessels entirely non-invasively.
