Safety and Efficacy Study of Autologous Cultured Adipose -Derived Stem Cells for the Crohn's Fistula
Up to date, a sure cure for Crohn's fistula does not known and the fistula recurrence rate is high. On 15 October 2008, orphan designation was granted by Korea FDA for human adipose-derived stem cell (ADIPOPLUS) for the treatment of Crohn's fistula. In this study, patients are given injection of ADIPOPLUS in fistula site and followed for 8 weeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.
A fistula between the maxillary sinus and the oral cavity.
Healing anal fistulas in Crohn's patients with an anal fistula plug.
Anal fistulae are a difficult problem to treat. The optimal treatment for fistula involving the anal sphincter is unclear. Two standardly used methods of treatment are the ligation of in...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of adalimumab for treatment of patients with moderate to severe Crohn's Disease (CD) and to measure the effects of treatment on patient...
The purpose of this study is to determine safety and efficacy of allogenic eASCs (expanded adult stem cells) for the treatment of recto-vaginal fistula in patients with Crohn´s disease.
Anal fistula is defined as an abnormal communication between the anal canal and the perianal skin. Adipose-derived stem cells are a new therapy for the closure of these fistulas. This stud...
A case of venous aneurysm complicating arteriovenous fistula created for chronic haemodialysis is presented. The patient underwent successful ligation and excision of the fistula and creation of a fis...
Inferior mesenteric arteriovenous fistula is rare and may be congenital or acquired. Affected patients present with abdominal pain, mass, or manifestations of portal hypertension and bowel ischemia. U...
Mesenteric adipose tissue hypertrophy is a hallmark of Crohn's disease and can express various adipokines. Exclusive enteral nutrition could effectively induce remission in Crohn's disease with mechan...
Pediatric-onset Crohn disease is more aggressive than adult-onset disease, has high rates of resistance to existing drugs, and can lead to permanent impairments. Few trials have evaluated new drugs fo...
The concept of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine at least since the 4(th) century. Evidence from recent human studies strongly supports the link betw...
