Further study details as provided by Promethera Biosciences:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterisation of the long term safety profile of HepaStem therapy. [ Time Frame: 4 years ]

    Assessment of safety will be achieved by evaluating the following parameters

    • Physical examination
    • Vital signs
    • Laboratory tests
    • Liver tumor markers
    • Autoimmune markers related to liver pathology
    • Anti-HLA antibodies specific for donor cell haplotypes
    • Morphology of liver, bile ducts, and portal system by ultrasound
    • Morphology of the kidneys by ultrasound
    • Non-serious or serious Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) related to HepaStem therapy.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the disease evolution after having received HepaStem therapy and to report on general safety. [ Time Frame: 4 years ]

    This assessment is based on the evaluation of:

    • Report on cognitive skills, behaviour, and health-related quality of life indicators
    • Non-serious or serious Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) related to concomitant medications or other causes

    Indication I: Crigler-Najjar syndrome

    • Frequency and severity of metabolic decompensation
    • Metabolic parameters (serum total bilirubin)
    • Report on supportive treatment and any adjustment of phototherapy and medication (eg phenobarbital treatment)

    Indication II: Urea cycle disorders

    • Frequency and severity of metabolic decompensation
    • Metabolic parameters (NH3 values, amino acids in plasma)
    • Report on supportive treatment and any adjustment of:

      • diet (natural protein intake, total protein intake, amino acid supplements)
      • Medication (eg nitrogen scavengers)

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Inborn errors of liver metabolism

Detailed Description:
The primary objective of the SAF001 study is the long-term safety surveillance of the patients post infusion with HepaStem. Furthermore, the evolution of both the metabolic condition and the quality of life are followed. As much as possible, the surveillance will mimic the standard follow-up of the respective diseases (standard of care). The surveillance will end when the patient is undergoing an organ transplant or takes part in another research study. This surveillance will last up to a maximum of 48 months.

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 23 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The SAF001 study will include all patients having received infusions of HepaStem in any former interventional study conducted by Promethera Biosciences.

Main Inclusion Criteria:

- Subject having received HepaStem during a former interventional clinical study and who have terminated their participation in that study.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Subject has received mature liver cells, stem cells transplantation other than HepaStem, or organ liver transplant.
