"PERIPHERAL-ARTERY DISEASE"--OR "P-A-D"--OCCURS WHEN ARTERIES IN THE LEGS AND FEET DON'T RECEIVE ENOUGH BLOOD-FLOW.  LEFT UNTREATED, IT CAN LEAD TO "CRITICAL-LIMB ISCHEMIA"--OR "C-L-I"--A POTENTIALLY LIFE-THREATENING CONDITION THAT MAY RESULT IN AMPUTATION.  DOCTORS ARE CURRENTLY CONDUCTING A CLINICAL-TRIAL FOR THIS CONDITION.  DOCTOR MICHAEL MURPHY--FROM THE "INDIANA UNIVERSITY 'DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY'"--EXPLAINS...

(MURPHY):
"
'C-L-I' IS A DEBILITATING CONDITION THAT AFFECTS NEARLY ONE-MILLION AMERICANS.  IN THE 'MOBILE'-STUDY, WE'RE TESTING AN INVESTIGATIONAL TREATMENT THAT USES A PATIENT'S OWN STEM-CELLS, TO HELP IMPROVE BLOOD-FLOW TO THE LEGS.  OUR PRIMARY GOAL IS TO FIND AN ALTERNATIVE TO AMPUTATION."

(CLOSE):
SYMPTOMS OF "C-L-I" INCLUDE CONSTANT LEG- AND FOOT-PAIN, AND SORES THAT WON'T HEAL.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE "MOBILE"-STUDY--AND THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE INVESTIGATIONAL TREATMENT--VISIT "P-A-D-STUDY"-DOT-ORG, OR CALL 877-788-3972.
