Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cells in Middle Cerebral Artery Acute Stroke Treatment.
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00761982|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : September 30, 2008
Last Update Posted : November 29, 2011
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Stroke, Acute Infarction, Middle Cerebral Artery||Procedure: Infusion on autologous CD34+ stem cells into middle cerebral artery||Phase 1 Phase 2|
The proposed trial will involve the recruitment of a total of 20 patients.
The cells will be collected from ten subject recruited as cases, via bone marrow sampling. The aspirate will be centrifuged on a Ficoll density gradient to isolate mononuclear cells, which will be resuspended in heparinized isotonic saline for infusion into the area of the stroke intra-arterially using the middle cerebral artery.
The investigators will monitor each case and control for a period of 6 months post-stem cell infusion. Initially, they will be subjected to a review after one month,three months and finally 6 months.
Assessment of adverse events will be by physical examination and measurement of laboratory parameters. Assessment of efficacy will be by physical examination and the measurement of laboratory, CT and MRI parameters.
