Primary outcome measure:
Evaluation of viability, security and tolerance of the adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells implant (ASCs) in fistulizing Crohn's disease patients, collecting the reactions and adverse events occurred during the study.
Secondary outcome measures:
1. Evaluating the Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells therapeutic effect, in particular:
- Fistulas healing efficiency
- Changes in quality of life in patients treated
- Changes of systemic Crohn's disease after implant
- Relapse rate monitored among patients who achieved Adipose-derived mesenchymal Stem Cells treatment success.
2. Achieving the biological characterization of the cell product used and its correlation with the therapeutic effect measured with:
- Phenotype study
- Suppressor capacity study.
- Citoquines production analysis

Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), derived from healthy adult volunteer human donors, can be obtained from bone marrow donation and cultured in the laboratory. MSCs have shown the abilit...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of intrathecal treatment delivered to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of mesenchymal stem cells in ALS patients every 3 mont...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of administering high-dose chemotherapy followed by infusion of autologous CD34-selected peripheral blood stem cells...
Despite the advent of newer biologic therapies such as infliximab for Crohn's disease, a form of autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease, a proportion of patients are refractory to such ther...
The Purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of regenerative therapy with intraarterial infusion of mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue, in diabetic patients ...
Autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) is a therapeutic option for patients with severe, treatment-refractory Crohn's disease (CD). The evidence base for AHSCT for CD is limited, ...
A systematic review of the literature was conducted to clarify the outcomes of autologous mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) injections for the regeneration of the intervertebral disc (IVD).
Disruption of normal barrier function is a fundamental factor in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease, and intestinal stem cell (ISC) transplantation may be an optional treatment for patient...
Since the discovery of adult mesenchymal stem cells extensive research has been conducted to determine their mechanisms of differentiation and effectiveness in cell therapy and regenerative medicine.
To assess the safety and efficacy of two repeated intrathecal injections of autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).
Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
Cells that can develop into distinct mesenchymal tissue such as BONE; TENDONS; MUSCLES; ADIPOSE TISSUE; CARTILAGE; NERVE TISSUE; and BLOOD and BLOOD VESSELS.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
Methods of implanting a CELL NUCLEUS from a donor cell into an enucleated acceptor cell. Often the nucleus of a somatic cell is transferred into a recipient OVUM or stem cell (STEM CELLS) with the nucleus removed. This technology may provide means to generate autologous diploid pluripotent cell for therapeutic cloning, and a model for studying NUCLEAR REPROGRAMMING in embryonic stem cells. Nuclear transfer was first accomplished with frog eggs (RANA PIPIENS) and reported in 1952.

Crohn's Disease (CD)
Crohn’s disease (CD) is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. Inflammation can affect any part of the digestive system, from the mouth to the back passage, but most commonly occurs in the last s...
