This paper describes the 1-year results of the CADUCEUS randomized  trial on the effect of intracoronary delivery of cardiosphere derived cells (CDC) 1.5 to 3 months after  myocardial infarction. Safety endpoints were similar in both groups. Patients treated with CDC had smaller scar size, an increase in viable myocardium and improved regional function of infarcted myocardium than those in the control group. Global ventricular function did not change from baseline to follow up in either group.
