Official Title: Safety and Efficacy of Autologous Adipose Tissue Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Transplantation in Patient With Lumbar Intervertebral Disc Degeneration

Further study details as provided by K-Stemcell Co Ltd:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the change of treated lumbar intervertebral discs using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at 6 months post injection of MSCs.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes of Neurological Functions [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the change of treated lumbar intervertebral discs using Muscle Test, Somatosensory Test, Deep Tendon Reflex and VAS (Visual Analogue Scale Score 0-10) at 6 months post injection of MSCs.

  • Safety evaluation [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To determine the overall safety of Autologous Adipose Tissue Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells carrier using physical examinations, vital signs, treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs), and the results of clinical lab tests.
