Brief Summary:
The purposes of the study is to determine the safety and efficacy of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSC) in treating Myelodysplastic Syndrome patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myelodysplastic Syndromes Biological: Allogeneic umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells Drug: Decitabine Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, paralleled study. 40 patients will be separated into two groups, and receive basic treatment (Decitabine). Patients in experimental group will receive hUC-MSC, while control group receive placebo (normal saline), four weeks as a course of treatment. All of the patients accept examination before treatment, including

  • diagnostic projects: bone marrow test, peripheral blood classification, chromosome, and MDS fusion gene test, etc.;
  • routine examination: blood, urine, and stool routine test, X-ray film in chest, electrocardiogram, etc.;
  • stem cell-based medicinal products usage, dosage, time, and course of treatment.

Then, patients will accept routine examination everyday, and after treatment, investigator will follow-up for 6 months, to evaluate the security and efficacy of hUC-MSC.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment related-adverse events counting [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    patients will be monitored for any adverse events resulting from the treatment of Human Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement in clinical function [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]

    According to 'Diagnostic and Curative Criteria of Hematological Diseases' 3rd edition edited by Zhang Zhinan and Shen Di, evaluate the hUC-MSCs efficacy. The result as follow:

    • complete remission (CR);
    • partial remission (PR);
    • stable disease (SD);
    • progressive disease (PD)
