  Purpose
This will be an open-label, non-randomized multi-center study of adipose stem cell (ASC) implantation. ASCs will be derived from the patient's adipose or fat. Liposuction using local anesthesia and syringe collection will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen for subsequent processing to isolate the stem cells. The cells will be delivered via needle injection into the eye.

Condition Intervention
Dry Macular Degeneration Biological: Adipose Derived Stem Cells

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-label, Non-Randomized, Multi-Center Study to Assess the Safety and Effects of Autologous Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells Injected Intravitreal in Dry Macular Degeneration

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • frequency and nature of adverse events [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Visual Field analysis (10-2) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Visual field testing can be performed clinically by keeping the subject's gaze fixed while presenting objects at various places within their visual field.

  • Visual Acuity Measurements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Visual acuity is a measure of the spatial resolution of the visual processing system. VA is tested by requiring the person whose vision is being tested to identify so-called optotypes - stylized letters, Landolt rings or other patterns - on a chart from a set viewing distance.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Intraocular pressure [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: December 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Inability to undergo syringe liposuction procedure or have any medical problems that contraindicate the procedure.
  • Life expectancy < 6 months due to concomitant illnesses.
  • Vitrectomized eyes
  • Exposure to any investigational drug or procedure within 1 month prior to study entry or enrolled in a concurrent study that may confound results of this study.
  • Active infectious disease. . If patients have tested positive for HIV, HTLV, HBV, HCV, CMV (IgM > IgG) and/or syphilis, an expert will be consulted as to patient eligibility based on the patient's infectious status
  • Any illness which might affect a patient's survival over the follow-up period
  • Any illness which, in the Investigator's judgement, will interfere with the patient's ability to comply with the protocol, compromise patient safety, or interfere with the interpretation of the study results
  • Patients on chronic immunosuppressive transplant therapy
  • Patients with severe coagulation disorders
  • Systolic blood pressure (supine) ≤90 mmHg;
  • Resting heart rate > 100 bpm;
  • Active clinical infection being treated by antibiotics within one week of enrollment.

  • Known drug or alcohol dependence or any other factors which will interfere with the study conduct or interpretation of the results or who in the opinion of the investigator are not suitable to participate.
  • Severe COPD or severe asthma that would contraindicate surgery
  • History of cancer (other than non-melanoma skin cancer or in-situ cervical cancer) in the last two years.
  • Unwilling and/or not able to give written informed consent.
