Adipose Derived Cells for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The intent of this clinical study is to answer the questions: 1) Is the proposed treatment safe and 2) Is treatment effective in improving the disease pathology of patients with diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
An Open-label, Non-Randomized, Multi-Center Study to Assess the Safety and Effects of Autologous Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells Delivered Intravenously in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Estimated Primary Completion Date
Resource links provided by the National Library of Medicine
Safety will be assessed as the occurrence/frequency (if applicable) of adverse events during the study procedures and for up to 6 months afterward.
St. George Respiratory [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
The St. George Respiratory questionnaire is an index developed to identify the quality of life of patients by measuring and quantifying health-related health status of patients with airflow obstruction.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Gold Classification [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
The GOLD COPD staging system classifies people with COPD based on their degree of airflow limitation (obstruction). The airflow limitation is measured during pulmonary function tests
6 Minute Walk Test [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
Exercise capacity as measured as the distance a patient can walk over a 6 minute time period.
