Safety and Efficacy of Adipose Derived Stem Cells for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
An Open-label, Non-Randomized, Multi-Center Study to Assess the Safety and Effects of Intra-venous and Inhalation Implantation of Autologous Adipose-Derived Stromal Vascular Fraction Cells in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The intent of this clinical study is to answer the questions: 1) Is the proposed treatment safe and 2) Is treatment effective in improving the health of patients with human Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

This will be an open-label, non-randomized multi-center patient sponsored study of Autologous SVF (AD-SVF) implantation after liposuction using an IV delivery system and Inhalation infusion. AD-SVF will be derived from the patient's adipose-derived tissue. Liposuction using local anesthesia and syringe collection will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen for subsequent processing to isolate the stem cells. The cells will be delivered intravenously.

The adipose tissue specimen will be collected from the patient's abdomen or applicable area using tumescent syringe liposuction. The adipose tissue is transferred to the laboratory for separation of the adipose tissue-derived stem cells, which are then transferred for IV delivery. The number of cells injected will vary depending on the amount of tissue processed and the number of cells obtained from the process.

Phase 1
Phase 2
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Procedure: Lipoaspiration with Local anesthesia
Patients undergo a liposuction under local Anethesia. The AD-SVF are then isolated and infused IV and by inhalation delivery.
Other Name: Liposuction
Experimental: Intravenous Injection and Inhalation infusion of AD-SVF
AD-SVF harvested from Autologous Adipose Tissue will be deliver after processing via IV and Inhalation
Intervention: Procedure: Lipoaspiration with Local anesthesia
