Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and possible effectiveness of Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells treatment in a Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis(ALS) patient.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Procedure: Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This pilot clinical trial is design to see the safety and possible efficiency of ADSCs treatment in a ALS patient. one subjects will be treated (n=1). The patient will receive brain transplantation of ADSCs and combines intravenous infusion ADSCs 4 times. Subjects will be assessed by adverse effects and functional outcomes of clinical: PI max , PE max,and Haloscale respiration, ALS functional rating scale (ALS-FRS) are analyzed at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months 9 months and 12 months.

Brain MRI scans will be obtained before and after the treatment. Long term follow-up will be performed at 1, 6 , and 12months for safety reasons. Brain CT for check operation safety before and after brain implantation.

Timing of Study: 12months recruitment period after approvals

Arm Intervention/treatment
Compassionate Treatment
ALS patients are received Intravenous and intracerebral implantation of Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs), Rehabilitation.
Procedure: Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells
  1. Intravenous and Intracerebral implantation of Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells
  2. Patient will receive brain implantation of approximately 100 -400million Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells.

Patient will receive Intravenous of approximately 100-400 million Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells twice , before brain implantation, and will receive Intravenous of approximately 100-400 million Autologous Adipose-Tissue Derived Stem Cells twice, after brain implantation .

Other Name: ADSCs




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. changes of ALS-FRS score [ Time Frame: Baseline-Day 28-Day 44-Day 60-6 months-9months-12months ]
    using ALS-FRS score to assess patient's function after transplantation.

  2. changes of respiratory function [ Time Frame: Baseline-Day 28-Day 44-Day 60-6 mouths-9mouths-12mouths ]
    check the changes of respiratory functions after intervention .

  3. changes of neurologic function [ Time Frame: Baseline-Day 28-Day 44-Day 60-6 mouths-9mouths-12mouths ]
    check any changes of neurologic functions after intervention .


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. changes of brain structure [ Time Frame: Baseline-Day 60- 6 mounths-12 mounths ]
    check changes of MRI after intervention
