The study--"Allogeneic hMSC Injection in Patients With Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (ELPIS)"--is an open-label clinical trial enrolling 30 infants with HLHS
overseen by Longeveron, a Miami-based regenerative medicine company, the University of Maryland, and Johns Hopkins University.
To understand the complexity of the patient with HLHS
, it is essential to understand the basic physiology of this congenital heart anomaly.
Under the terms of the grant agreement, the company will partner with the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University to conduct a clinical trial for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS
), a rare and often fatal condition in infants caused by an underdeveloped heart.
Growth and correlates of nutritional status among infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS

Birmingham Children's Hospital and the University of Birmingham have received the money from Heart Research UK to study how youngsters with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS
