This will be an open-label, non-randomized, multi-center, patient sponsored study of Adipose-Derived Stem Cell (ASC) implantation via intravenous push 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 disease pathology of patients with diagnosed Type II Diabetes Mellitus.

ASCs will be collected from the patient's adipose-derived tissue (body fat). Using local anesthesia, Liposuction will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen. The adipose tissue is then transferred to the laboratory for separation of the adipose tissue derived stem cells. In addition, peripheral blood will be collected for isolation of platelet rich plasma, which are then combined with the ASC's for intravenous push administration.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of insulin requirement by > 50% [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of adverse events reported [ Time Frame: up to the 6-month period following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The safety of adipose-derived stem cell injection will be evaluated by assessment of the frequency and nature of adverse events occurring during the study injection and up to the 6-month period following treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of Hemoglobin A1c(HbA1c) levels as compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood sample

  • reduction in requirement of insulin dosage compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: March 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intravenous Injection Only
Intravenous administration of the ASCs only.
Procedure: Harvesting and Implantation of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ASCs)
ASCs 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 second arm consists of an IV push only with ASCs
