Adipose Derived Stem Cells Transplantation for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease. People with COPD have difficulties breathing, primarily due to the narrowing of their airways, this is called airflow obstruction.

Some preclinical evaluations showed that COPD is closely related to chronic inflammation; therefore, this study aimed to use adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) in the form of non-expanded culture - that usually names as a stromal vascular fraction (SVF) in combination with activated platelet rich plasma (PRP) to treat this disease. Both SVF and PRP are autologous sources that obtained from adipose tissue and peripheral blood, respectively. This mixture is intravenously transfused into the patients.

Autologous Adipose Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis

The proposed study is two centers, unblinded, non randomized, phase I/II trial in which the patients will be treated with a single dose of autologous stromal vascular cells (SVF) in combination with platelet rich plasma (PRP).

This study aimes to evaluate the clinical efficiency of autologous adipose tissue-derived MSC transplantation in patients with confirmed osteoarthritis at grade II and III. Adipose tissue is isolated from the belly, and used for extraction of the SVF. The SVF is mixed with activated platelet-rich plasma before injection. The clinical efficiencies are evaluated by the pain score (VAS), Lysholm score, and MRI findings. SVF is isolated from about 100 mL of adipose tissue, and PRP is prepared from 20 mL of peripheral blood. Total injection volume will be about 5-10 mL. The total number of SVF to be injected is 1.0 x 10(7) to 5 x 10(7).
