Safety and Efficacy of Human Bone Marrow Stem Cells for Treatment of HBV-related Liver Cirrhosis
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
HBV related Liver disease is a common medical problem in China. An estimated 7.18% of the Chinese (about 93 million) is infected with hepatitis B, and most of the HBV- related hepatitis can developed into liver cirrhosis.
Liver transplantation is the only available life saving treatment for patients with end stage liver disease. However, lack of donors, surgical complications, rejection, and high cost are serious problems.
stem cells(SCs) possess plasticity and have the potential to differentiate into hepatocyte; Thus, SCs hold great hope for therapeutic applications. Adult bone marrow is the most common source of SCs for clinical applications.Previous study showed that bone marrow derived stem cells (BMSCs) replace hepatocytes in injured liver, and effectively rescue experimental liver failure and contribute to liver regeneration. In this study, the patients with HBV-related liver cirrhosis will undergo administration of human autologous BMSCs via hepatic artery to evaluate the safty and efficacy of human autologous BMSCs treatment for these patients.
