Study Description
Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of mesenchymal stromal cells as treatment for steroid-refractory chronic graft-versus-host disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Graft-Versus-Host Disease Biological: Mesenchymal stromal cells Phase 1

Study Design

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 11 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Mesenchymal Stromal Cells as Treatment of Chronic Graft-versus-host Disease
Study Start Date : August 2011
Primary Completion Date : March 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2017


Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Mesenchymal stromal cell treatment Biological: Mesenchymal stromal cells
Allogenous mesenchymal stromal cells, to be injected intravenously at a dose of 1-2 million/kg at a frequency of once a month (frequency may be changed during the study if deemed appropriate by investigators) for 6-9 months.


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in disease activity according to National Institute of Health criteria [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in disease activity as measured by histological examination [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 months ]
  2. Change in self-assessed disease activity and quality of life [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 months ]
  3. Safety [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Frequency of complications, infections and relapse

  4. Freedom from steroids at 1 year after MSC treatment [ Time Frame: 1 year after finishing treatment ]
    Proportion of patients free from corticosteroids at 1 year after finishing MSC treatment.
