Brief Summary:
The clinical study with UMC119-06 is designed to investigate the safety in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. This will be a dose escalation, open label, single-center study in adult with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. UMC119-06 is ex vivo cultured human umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells product which is intended for treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Moderate Biological: UMC119-06 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, predicted to be the third leading cause of death in adults by 2020. Patients with COPD are characterized with airflow limitation and chronic inflammation, which is caused by cigarette smoking, noxious particles or gases. These inhaled irritants will induce inflammation, emphysema and fibrosis though chronic exposure. The current pharmacological treatment of COPD is symptomatic and is mainly based on bronchodilators, such as selective β2-adrenergic agonists (short-and long-acting), anticholinergics, theophylline, or a combination of these drugs. In patients with continuing exacerbations, inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs) may be added in the form of a triple fixed dose combination inhaler that includes ICSs, long-acting β2-agonists (LABA) and inhaled long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMA). Although current clinical treatment strategies can improve and stabilize COPD states and quality of life, none of them are able to modify the progressive decline in lung function which is the hallmark of this disease. Therefore, development of new therapeutic modalities to improve the clinical outcomes and prognosis of COPD in adult patients is of urgent need. Among the more innovative, experimental therapies, mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are proposed as a novel therapy with potential in treatment of COPD.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence and frequency of adverse events related to administration of UMC119-06. [ Time Frame: 3 months from the day of administration ]
    • Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs).
    • Incidence of withdrawals due to Adverse Events(AEs).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC). [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration. ]
    Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC).

  2. Changes in Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1). [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration. ]
    Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second (FEV1).

  3. Changes in the ratio of Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second to the Forced Vital Capacity (FEV1/FVC). [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration ]
    Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in the ratio of Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second to the Forced Vital Capacity (FEV1/FVC).

  4. Changes in exercise performance using 6-min walk test (6MWT). [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration. ]
    Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in exercise performance using 6-min walk test (6MWT).

  5. Changes in Quality Of Life using St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire Safety (SGRQ). [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration. ]
    Scores range from 0 (no impairment) to 100 (maximum impairment), with higher scores indicating more limitation. A decrease in score represents a decrease in disease related symptoms. Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in Quality Of Life using St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire Safety (SGRQ).

  6. Changes in modified medical research council (mMRC) -dyspnea scale. [ Time Frame: 15 months from the day of administration. ]
    Scores range from 0 (no dyspnea) to 4 (severe dyspnea), with higher scores indicate worse COPD control. Improvement in clinical function as assessed by mean change in modified medical research council (mMRC) -dyspnea scale.
