Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects with an excellent outcome defined by the functional assessments [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
    <Excellent outcome> is defined as mRS score of ≤1 (scale, 0 to 6), NIHSS score of ≤1 (scale, 0 to 42), and BI score of ≥95 (scale, 0 to 100).

  • Comparison between the HLCM051 and the placebo groups in key adverse events [ Time Frame: within Day90 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects with an excellent outcome defined by the functional assessments [ Time Frame: Day 365 ]
  • Proportion of subjects exhibiting functional outcome throughout the range of mRS scores by shift analysis [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects exhibiting functional outcome throughout the range of mRS scores by shift analysis [ Time Frame: Day 365 ]
  • Proportion of subjects who meet all of a mRS score of ≤2, NIHSS score improvement of ≥75% from baseline and a BI score of ≥95 [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects with a mRS score of ≤1 and a mRS score of ≤2 [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects with a NIHSS score of ≤1 [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects with a favorable outcome (NIHSS score improvement of ≥75% from baseline) in neurological symptoms [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects with a BI score of ≥95 [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects who survived without life-threatening adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Proportion of subjects who survived without secondary infections [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
  • Global recovery (i.e., GEE) and dichotomous assessment [ Time Frame: Day 90 ]
    Global recovery is an integrated assessment of patients who meet all of mRS score of ≤2, NIHSS score improvement of ≥75% from baseline, and BI score of ≥95, survival without life-threatening AEs and secondary infections

  • Comparison of the incidence of secondary infections (local and systemic), AEs, death, vital signs and laboratory parameters between the HLCM051 and the placebo groups [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in biomarkers (white blood cell populations and inflammatory markers) from baseline [ Time Frame: Day 2, Day 7, Day 30. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 220
Study Start Date: January 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HLCM051 (MultiStem)
single dose of 1.2 billion HLCM051 cells
Biological: HLCM051
Within 18 to 36 hours after the onset of ischemic stroke, subjects will receive a single dose of 1.2 billion HLCM051 cells to be intravenously administered
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
a single dose of placebo
Biological: Placebo
Within 18 to 36 hours after the onset of ischemic stroke, subjects will receive a single dose of placebo to be intravenously administered

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter, phase 2/3 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravenous administration of HLCM051 compared with placebo in subjects with acute ischemic stroke (within 36 hours of onset). Japanese subjects who developed a subcortical ischemic stroke and are eligible to participate in the trial will be evaluated.

Approximately 220 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio (HLCM051 group [n=110] or placebo group [n=110]) to receive a single infusion of HLCM051 or placebo.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Japanese male or female patients 20 years of age or older;
  • Clinical diagnosis of cerebral cortical ischemic stroke;
  • Occurrence of an ischemic stroke with clear motor or speech deficit documented by National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score of 8 to 20 (at the baseline assessment) that did not change by ≥4 points from the screening to the baseline assessment;
  • Onset of ischemic stroke must have occurred within 18 to 36 hours prior to the start of administration of the investigational product;
  • Confirmation of hemispheric cortical infarct with brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including diffusion-weighted imaging with b-value of 1,000 demonstrating an acute lesion measuring ≥ 2.0 cm of longest diameter;
  • A modified Rankin Scale (mRS) of 0 or 1, by either self-report or family report, prior to the onset of ischemic stroke;
  • Female patients who meet either:

    • Not pregnant, not breastfeeding/ interrupting breastfeeding, and not planning on becoming pregnant during the trial;
    • Not of childbearing potential, defined as one who has been postmenopausal for at least 1 year, or has been surgically sterilized, or has had a hysterectomy at least 3 months prior to the start of this trial; or
    • If of childbearing potential, one who has agreed to follow investigator's advice and use an effective contraceptive method up to the end of the trial. Effective contraceptive methods include contraceptive methods used consistently and correctly (oral contraceptives, intrauterine devices, diaphragm, or male or female condoms), abstinence, and a sterile sexual partner;
  • Male patients with female partners of childbearing potential must agree to follow investigator's advice and use adequate contraceptive methods (a combination of a condom and another form of contraception) up to the end of the trial if engaging in sexual intercourse;
  • Patients or legal representatives must freely sign the informed consent form after the nature of the trial and the disclosure of his/her data have been explained;
  • Willing and able to comply with all aspects of the treatment and testing schedule; and
  • Willing and able to return to the trial site for the post-treatment evaluations.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Reduced level of consciousness (score of 3 for item 1a of NIHSS);
  • Occurrence of a hemorrhagic transformation as evidenced by computerized tomography (CT) or brain MRI scan that is clinically significant in the opinion of the investigator;
  • Ipsilateral focal neurological deficits from prior lesions in the brain that would complicate evaluation;
  • Experienced seizures since the onset of ischemic stroke;
  • History of a neurological event such as stroke or clinically significant head trauma within 6 months prior to the start of screening;
  • Patients who both received tPA treatment and underwent mechanical reperfusion (patients are eligible for the trial if they had only one of them, tPA treatment or mechanical reperfusion);

  • Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, Parkinson's disease, or any other neurological disorder that in the opinion of the trial doctor would affect their ability to participate in the trial or confound study assessments;
  • History of malignant tumor(s) within 2 years of the onset of ischemic stroke, with the exception of adequately treated basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin;
  • Contraindication for MRI such as implanted pacemakers or other metallic prosthesis incompatible with MRI, body weight, or claustrophobia;

  • Other serious medical or psychiatric illness that is not adequately controlled and, in the investigator's opinion, would not permit the subject to be managed according to the protocol;
  • Previous surgical removal of the spleen;
  • Major fluctuation in neurological status since the onset of ischemic stroke indicating progression or expansion of ischemic stroke, or possible transient ischemic attack;
  • Plan to have a neurovascular procedure (e.g., carotid endarterectomy, stent placement, etc.) within the first year following ischemic stroke; or
