AIMS: The aim of our study was to compare the effect of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNC) and peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC) therapy in patients with diabetic foot disease (DFD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI) unresponsive to revascularization with conservative therapy. METHODS: Twenty eight patients with DFD (17 treated by BMMNC and 11 by PBPC) were included into active group and 22 patients into control group without cell treatment. Transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO(2) ) and rate of major amputation were compared between BMMNC, PBPC and control groups over 6 months as the main outcome measures; both cell therapy methods were also compared by the characteristics of cell suspensions. Possible adverse events were evaluated by changes of serum levels of angiogenic cytokines and retinal fundoscopic examination. RESULTS: TcPO(2) increased significantly (p < 0.05) compared to baseline in both active groups after 6 months, with no significant differences between BMMNC and PBPC groups; however no change of TcPO(2) in control group was observed. The rate of major amputation till 6 months was significantly lower in active cell therapy group compared to control group (11.1% vs. 50%, p = 0.0032), with no difference between BMMNC and PBPC. Number of injected CD34+ cells and serum levels of angiogenic cytokines after treatment did not significantly differ between BMMNC and PBPC. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed superior benefit of BMMNC and PBPC treatment of CLI in patients with DFD when compared to conservative therapy. There was no difference between both cell therapy groups and no patient demonstrated signs of systemic vasculogenesis. Copyright © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
