Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement in Physical Performance Test (PPT) Results [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Adverse Events Reported [ Time Frame: up to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The safety of adipose-derived stem cell injection will be evaluated by assessment of the frequency and nature of adverse events occurring during the study injection and up to the 6-month period following treatment.

  • Improvement in Physical Performance Test (PPT) Results [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Improved body composition/bone density compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Improved body composition/bone density compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life is improved compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life is improved compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Improved exercise capacity compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Improved exercise capacity compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: May 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Harvesting and implantation of stem cells
    The adipose tissue specimen will be collected from the patient's abdomen or applicable area using tumescent syringe liposuction. The adipose tissue is transferred to the laboratory for separation of the adipose tissue-derived stem cells, which are then transferred for injection intravenously.
Detailed Description:

This will be an open-label, non-randomized multi-center patient sponsored study of Autologous Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ASC) implantation after liposuction using an IV delivery system. ASCs will be derived from the patient's adipose-derived tissue. Liposuction using local anesthesia and syringe collection will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen for subsequent processing to isolate the stem cells. The cells will be delivered intravenously.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
