Adipose Derived Stem Cells Transplantation for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease. People with COPD have difficulties breathing, primarily due to the narrowing of their airways, this is called airflow obstruction.
Some preclinical evaluations showed that COPD is closely related to chronic inflammation; therefore, this study aimed to use adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) in the form of non-expanded culture - that usually names as a stromal vascular fraction (SVF) in combination with activated platelet rich plasma (PRP) to treat this disease. Both SVF and PRP are autologous sources that obtained from adipose tissue and peripheral blood, respectively. This mixture is intravenously transfused into the patients.

- SGOT [ Time Frame: 1 month ]The blood SGOT levels are thus elevated with liver damage
- SGPT [ Time Frame: 1 month ]The blood SGPT levels are thus elevated with liver damage
- Respiration rate [ Time Frame: 1 month, 6 months, 12 months ]
- 6 min walk test [ Time Frame: 1 month, 6 months, 12 months ]
- rates of panic attacks [ Time Frame: 1 month, 6 months, 12 months ]
- CRP concentration [ Time Frame: 6 months, 12 months ]The CRP concentration in the patients were evaluated before and after treatment for 6 and 12 months
|Study Start Date:||June 2015|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||September 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Autologous stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) will be transfused into 20 COPD patients.
Biological: Adipose derived stem cells
Adipose derived stem cells that are isolated from adipose tissue are mesenchymal stem cells with high immune modulation capacity. Therefore, they can effectively modulate the immune system.
