Brief Summary:

This study is designed to assess the safety and effect of autologous adipose derived stem cell (ADSCs) transplantation in acute spinal cord injury patients.

  1. To assess the safety of autologous ADSCs transplantation in acute spinal cord injury and the complication after ADSCs transplantation.
  2. To evaluate the effect of ADSCs isolation and expansion procedure.
  3. To determine if functional outcome is improved following ADSCs transplantation in acute spinal cord injury patient, using pre-transplantation spinal cord function as the control.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Spinal Cord Injury Device: Laminectomy Device: Intradural space Device: Intrathecal Device: Intravenous Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The research has carried out in Phase II which is designed as randomized controlled trials.

Selection of patients began in Feb,2013, 48 patients are divided in two group according to a 2:1 ratio (the number of candidates as treated: the candidates as control).

The effectiveness of preliminary trial are evaluated by assessing Frankel/ASIA motor grade, measuring electrophysiological parameters, enhanced MRI and urinary and bowel function.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment with ADSCs transplantation
4 Intervention: laminectomy, intradural space at damage site, intrathecal at lumbar puncture, intravenous
Device: Laminectomy
surgical laminectomy with glial scar resection

Device: Intradural space
ADSCs injection into Intradural space at damage site

Device: Intrathecal
ADSCs Intrathecal into lumbar puncture

Device: Intravenous
ADSCs intravenous

No Intervention: Treatment without ADSCs transplantation
Only intervention: laminectomy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with adverse events after transplantation. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Number of Participants with adverse events is as a measure of safety and tolerability after ADSC transplantation. Adverse events can be impaired liver and kidney, immunosuppression or immune deficiency, hypersensitivity, anaphylactic shock, meningitis symptoms, etc.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes of spinal cord edema in the MRI at the lesion site [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Patients take MRI at the lesion site before each injection and after transplantation 6 months, 12 months, 24 months. MRI at the lesion site shows spinal cord edema level is reduced or not.

  2. Urinary and bowel function Improvement [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Bladder pressure monitory to assess ability to feel and control urination and bowel.

  3. Muscle contraction force measurement [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Comparison the electromyography (EMG) score during contraction of given muscles before each injection and after transplantation 6 months, 12 months and 24 months.

  4. Significant clinical improvement in ASIA impairment scale and general condition. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Patients are assess improvement level based on American Spinal Injury Assessment scale of A,B,C,D or E before and after transplantation.
