Several previous studies have demonstrated that administration of autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BMMNCs) improves cardiac function in patients after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, optimum timing of administration has not been investigated in a clinical trial. The Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network was developed and funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to address important questions such as timing of cell delivery and to accelerate research in the use of cell-based therapies. The TIME trial is a randomized, phase II, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. The 5 member clinical sites of the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network will enroll 120 eligible patients with moderate-to-large anterior AMIs who have undergone successful percutaneous coronary intervention of the left anterior descending coronary artery and have a left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction
