Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intravenous administration of autologous adipose stem cells is safe and beneficial in patients with type 1 diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Procedure: Autologous Adipose-derived Stem cells Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Diabetes Mellitus is of large epidemic proportions worldwide. It is proliferating at such a fast rate that new novel drugs and other therapeutic approaches are required. The purpose of this Phase I/II study is to determine whether the intravenous administration of activated adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction as a single procedure is safe and efficacious in patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. Patients will be observed over 12 months following the procedure, with 2 weeks, 1 month and tri-monthly diagnostics and life style questionaires.
