Liver Regeneration Therapy by Intrahepatic Arterial Administration of Autologous Adipose Tissue Derived Stromal Cells

2014-08-27 03:16:08 | BioPortfolio


Mesenchymal stem cells have capability to differentiate into hepatocyte and will be useful for liver regeneration. Adipose tissue is relatively enriched with mesenchymal stem cell compared to bone marrow tissue. In this trial, eligible liver cirrhosis patients will receive autologous adipose tissue derived stromal cells through intrahepatic arterial catheterization.


The population of the liver cirrhosis patients is enormous in Japan and the only radical treatment for them is liver transplantation: however, the number of giving donor is extremely limited. Mesenchymal stem cells have been capable to differentiate into mesodermal-lineage cells as well as endodermal-lineage cells such as hepatocytes. They reside in the mesenchymal tissues such as bone marrows as well as adipose tissues. The latter tissues are relatively enriched with mesenchymal stem cells compared to bone marrow cells. In this study, the cirrhotic patients will undergo intrahepatic arterial administration of autologous adipose tissue derived stromal cells through catheter.

In Vitro and In Vivo Osteogenic Differentiation of Human Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells.

Adipose-derived stromal cells (ASCs) are a promising population of cells that may be useful for the regeneration of human tissue defects. ASCs are capable of forming bone tissue in vitro and in vivo. ...

Isolating and Characterizing Adipose-Derived Stem Cells.

The research and application of regeneration medicine will require a reliable source of stem cells. Adipose tissue has proven to be an easily accessible and rich source of adult stem cells, termed adi...

Anti-apoptotic effects of adipose-derived adherent stromal cells in mesenchymal stem cells exposed to oxidative stress.

Adipose-derived stromal vascular fractions (SVFs) are a heterogeneous collection of cells, and their regenerative modality has been applied in various animal experiments and clinical trials. Despite t...

Human Adipose Tissue-Derived Stromal Cells Attenuate the Multiple Organ Injuries Induced by Sepsis and Mechanical Ventilation in Mice.

Mechanical ventilation (MV) can augment sepsis-induced organ injury. Previous studies indicate that human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have immune-modulatory effect. We hypothesize that human adipos...

Fibroblast growth factor-2, but not the adipose tissue-derived stromal cells secretome, inhibits TGF-β1-induced differentiation of human cardiac fibroblasts into myofibroblasts.

Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is a potent inducer of fibroblast to myofibroblast differentiation and contributes to the pro-fibrotic microenvironment during cardiac remodeling. Fibroblast g...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.

Specialized connective tissue composed of fat cells (ADIPOCYTES). It is the site of stored FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. In mammals, there are two types of adipose tissue, the WHITE FAT and the BROWN FAT. Their relative distributions vary in different species with most adipose tissue being white.

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).

Neoplasms composed of fatty tissue or connective tissue made up of fat cells in a meshwork of areolar tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in adipose tissue.

Brown fat-like adipose tissue that develops in WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE from non-MYOGENIC REGULATORY FACTOR 5 expressing cell lineage.
