Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: GLP-1 CellBeads Drug: GLP-1 CellBeads
GLP-1 CellBeads are alginate microcapsules containing allogenic mesenchymal cells, transfected to secrete Glucagon like peptide-1. By implantation into brain tissue cavity after surgical evacuation of the hematoma, a volume of 500μl GLP-1 CellBeads which equals approximately 2330 GLP-1 CellBeads resulting in a total number of approximately 7.8 million cells is administered to the patient. The cells are removed by second surgery after a 14 days treatment period.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Confirmed diagnosis of intracerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage in conjunction with ICH by cranial computed tomography (CCT) or Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT)
  • Patients who need by judgement of a clinical neurologist or neurosurgeon surgical removal of the blood clot due to its space-occupying effects
  • Age greater or equal 18 years for men
  • Age greater or equal 18 years for women if confirmed infertility (e.g. hysterectomy or surgical sterilisation at least 3 months before study start)
  • For all other women age greater or equal 50 years with last menstrual bleeding at least one year before study start
  • Minimum hematoma diameter of 2 cm as measured in baseline CCT or MRT
  • Signed, written informed consent of patient or consent/assertion from the patient's legally acceptable representative/affiliated if the patient is unable to provide informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participation in any other clinical trial within the past 3 months or ongoing
  • Occurrence of inconsistency with initial diagnosis at baseline during surgery of the patient leading to unfulfilled inclusion criterion Hemorrhage secondary to tumour or trauma
  • Patients with a cerebellar hemorrhage or extension of a supratentorial hemorrhage into the brainstem
  • Patients with severe pre-existing physical or mental disability or severe comorbidity that interferes with the assessment of outcome
  • Allergy to contrast media (MRT)
  • Acute infection
  • Muscular, neurological, or vascular insufficiency of the respective tissue
  • Polypropylene incompatibility
  • Acute immunosuppressive medication
  • Patient after organ transplantation
  • Patient with immune depression
  • Patients with a high probability of spontaneous recovery or showing rapidly improving signs
  • Patients with extensive intracranial hemorrhages or with deep hemispheric localisation of the clots
  • Patients whose diagnosis of ICH is uncertain
