Safety and Efficacy of Adipose Derived Stem Cells for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
11 Jul, 2019 ,

This will be an open-label, non-randomized multi-center study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of Adipose-derived Stem Cell (ASC) IV implantation. The therapy is composed of cells isolated from a patient's own adipose tissue. Liposuction will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen for subsequent processing to isolate the stem cells.  In this study, they propose to investigate the immunosuppressive potential of the non-manipulated non-cultured stromal vascular fraction obtained via liposuction. Endpoints will be measured both by an improvement of the forced evacuation volume in one second (FEV1) and distance covered in a 6-minute walk distance test (6MWD).
