Brief Summary:
This study is randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase I/II study designed to evaluate safety and efficacy of KP-100IT, code of Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) formulation for intrathecal injection, as a treatment for acute spinal cord injury. The study is conducted at two clinical sites in Japan.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: KP-100IT
Intrathecal injection of 0.6 mg HGF starting at 72 hours since the injury and repeating weekly 5 times
Drug: KP-100IT
Other Names:
  • Hepatocyte Growth Factor
  • HGF

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Intrathecal injection of placebo starting at 72 hours since the injury and repeating weekly 5 times
Drug: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number and degree of adverse events [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Adverse events will be judged by general condition, vital sign, electrocardiogram, MRI, blood chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, cerebrospinal fluid examination, and antibody formation

  2. Change of ASIA (American Spinal Injury Association) motor score from baseline at 24 weeks [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of ASIA motor score from baseline at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  2. Time-dependent change of ASIA motor score from baseline [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  3. Time-dependent change of ASIA sensory score from baseline [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  4. Time-dependent grade change of modified Frankel scale from baseline [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  5. Time-dependent change of P-100 concentration in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
