Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • European stroke scale (ESS) [ Time Frame: 1, 2, 4, 12 weeks, and confirmed at 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • European stroke motor subscale (EMS) [ Time Frame: 1, 2, 4, 12 weeks, and confirmed at 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: June 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: PBSC Treatment
Patients in PBSC treatment will receive brain implant of autologous peripheral blood stem cell(CD34+) plus convention stroke treatment that include rehabilitation and antiplatelet medication
Procedure: Intercerebral implantation of Autulogous Stem Cells
2-8 millions Stem cell per patients plus convention therapy
Other Names:
  • PBSC
  • CD34 Stem Cell
Active Comparator: Control
Control group receive conventional stroke treatment that include rehabilitation and antiplatelet medication
Drug: convention therapy
Other Name: convention therapy

Detailed Description:

30 patients are divided into 2 groups, one treatment group and one control group.Treatment group will be implanted with peripheral blood stem cell and receive convention stroke therapy ,and control group only receive convention stroke therapy. We expect that transplantation of the peripheral blood CD34+ cells has the potential of significant benefit to neurological recovery. In a previous phase I clinical trial, we have shown that transplantation of CD34+ cells obtained from the peripheral blood of the chronic stroke patients was safe and beneficial for neurological recovery. We expect this trial can further prove the efficacy of this treatment method.
