Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is verify the safety and efficacy of Human Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells (UC-MSC) therapy for patients with Spinocerebellar Ataxia, and in addition, explore the possible mechanisms of UC-MSC therapy in Spinocerebellar Ataxia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 1 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 2 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 3 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6 Procedure: Intravenous infusion Procedure: Intrathecal injection Biological: umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a random, open label, and parallel controled experiment. 45 patients are selected and sign consent forms, then divided into three groups. Doctors collect the basic information of patient (including age,height, mental condition, vital sign, history of disease, pharmaco-history, genotype test, and so on.) All patients receive laboratory and image examination as baseline. Then, they will give cell treatment based on the clinical protocol. Doctors have follow-up visit on 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12 months after treatment, and do efficacy evaluation.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 45 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Clinical Research on the Safety/Efficacy of Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells Therapy for Patients With Spinocerebellar Ataxia
Estimated Study Start Date : January 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2019


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intravenous infusion group
Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (SCLnow 19#)
Procedure: Intravenous infusion
Intravenous infusion of mesenchymal stem cells: 2 * 10^7 cells (30ml)

Biological: umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell
Treat patients with umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell (SCLnow 19#), the dosage based on different procedure

Experimental: Intrathecal injection group
Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (SCLnow 19#)
Procedure: Intrathecal injection
Intrathecal injection of mesenchymal stem cells: 2 * 10^7 cells (1ml)

Biological: umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell
Treat patients with umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell (SCLnow 19#), the dosage based on different procedure

No Intervention: Control groups
No intervention



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Scale for the assessment anf rating of ataxia (SARA) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Based on SARA score to calculate treatment efficacy. The equation is as follow, Efficacy = (patients who accepted treatment are effective/patients who accepted treatment)* 100% Effective: after 12 months, score of patient decrease 1 point or more; Ineffective: after 12 months, score decrease less than 1 point or increase.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Image examinations [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    MRI plain scan of brain.

  2. Inventory of Non-Ataxia Symptoms (INAS) score [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Using Inventory of Non-Ataxia Symptoms (INAS) score to determine the presence and severity of non-ataxia signs.

  3. Cerebrospinal fluid (csf) routine [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Patients is observed by professionals, compare the changes of each observation point and baseline. Baseline is the data acquire from patients before stem cells treatment.
