N1 - Funding Information: Dr. Hare: There is a very rapid proliferation of enthusiasm for this therapy among both the medical community and among patients. The medical community has a major responsibility to aggressively perform the appropriate studies that could lead to clinical approval of this therapy. Some forms of SC therapy have been approved in Europe. I predict that we will have approval in the United States for SC treatments sooner than most experts believe, perhaps within the next 3 to 5 years. One of the most important initiatives is the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN), funded by the National Institutes of Health. The CCTRN has devoted substantial resources to a multicenter network that Dr. Willerson, Dr. Miller, and I are honored to participate in. In this consortium, SC research trials can be conducted very quickly. Funding Information: This article is supported by a grant from the Okyanos Heart Institute, Freeport, The Bahamas.
