This study is being done to test if it is safe to give stem cells to adult patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The kind of stem cells we are studying are called allogeneic human mesenchymal stem cells or MSCs. MSCs are cells in the body that can grow into different types of cells and respond to various environmental situations. Allogeneic means the cells come from another person (a donor).
This study is only looking at whether or not it is safe to give the stem cells to adults with CF and how the infusion is tolerated. In the future, other studies may be done to see if stem cells can be a new therapeutic treatment for CF.
Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure or prevent disease, generally require approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they can be marketed. The FDA has not approved any stem cell-based products for usual medical care, other than some specific blood forming stem cells for certain indications.

Experimental: Human Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells
One time IV Infusion of up to 5 x 10^6 allogeneic hMSCs/kg of body weight. A dose escalation using the "3+3" design will be employed. The three doses are 1 x 10^6, 3 x 10^6, and 5 x 10^6 hMSCs/kg. There is no placebo group. All study participants will receive stem cells.
Biological: Mesenchymal Stem Cells
A single dose, one time infusion (in the vein) of one of the following doses of hMSCs: 1 x 10^6, 3 x 10^6 or 5 x 10^6 hMSCs/kg body weight during Visit 2. A traditional 3+3 design will be utilized.
Allogeneic MSCs will be derived from bone marrow aspirates from a healthy donor whose serum tests negative for cytomegalovirus (CMV) antibodies. Healthy donors will undergo tests for infectious disease and screening for 41 common CFTR mutations. In addition, the MSCs will be validated for in vitro and in vivo efficacy and potency using the in vivo murine pre-clinical model of CF lung infection and inflammation.
Other Name: MSCs
- Dose limiting toxicity (DLT), triggered by occurrence in the first 24 hours after hMSC infusion of grade ≥3 infusion-related allergic toxicities [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
