ADMSCs for the Treatment of Systemic Sclerosis

2016-11-30 15:45:41 | BioPortfolio


Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a rare autoimmune disease, mainly characterized by cutaneous and visceral fibrosis. Digital ulcer and sclerosing skin are commonly affected on hands, but the treatment for these manifestations are often ineffective.

Adipose tissue contains stromal vascular fraction (SVF), which is abundant multipotent stem cells, capable of tissue repair. A prior study (NCT01813279) has shown the safety and tolerance at 6 months of the subcutaneous injection of SVF in the fingers in SSc.

There are only few ways to manage SSc patients with skin lesion who already have treated with several medications (including vasodilators, PDE5 inhibitor, endothelin receptor antagonist) but some times their skin lesions are critical physically and emotionally.

Autologous SVF injection could be one of the treatment options to treat skin lesion of SSc. Thus, the investigators study the efficacy and potential adverse event in Korean patients with SSc.


In this study, the investigators will inject autologous Stromal vascular fraction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
