Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells Transplantation for Systemic Sclerosis (SSc)

2014-08-27 03:19:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will explore safety and efficacy of allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells transplantation (MSCT) to treat patients with diagnosis of systemic sclerosis(SSc) who have been resistant to multiple standard treatments. The underlying hypothesis is that the SSc condition is caused by an abnormal immune homeostasis that can be restored by MSCT.

Description

- To test a new approach using allogeneic derived mesenchymal stem cell based therapy (MSCT) to treat refractory SSc

- To determine the disease-free survival in SSc patients treated with MSCT

- To assess adverse events of allogeneic MSC transplantation

- To assess the association of remission for organ function, clinical score and SSc serology levels at baseline with disease-free survival

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).

Cells that can develop into distinct mesenchymal tissue such as BONE; TENDONS; MUSCLES; ADIPOSE TISSUE; CARTILAGE; NERVE TISSUE; and BLOOD and BLOOD VESSELS.

Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from: http://www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/primer.htm)

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
