Brief Summary:
This study will explore safety and efficacy of allogeneic umbilical cord (UC) derived mesenchymal stem cells transplantation (MSCT) to treat patients with active and refractory systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who have been resistant to multiple standard treatments. The underlying hypothesis is that the active SLE condition is caused by an abnormal immune homeostasis that can be restored by MSCT.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Biological: human umbilical cord derived MSC transplantation for SLE Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. All patients fulfilled the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria of SLE, man or woman aged from 15 to 70 years old, SLEDAI≥8;
  2. Lupus nephritis with 24h urine protein≥1g;
  3. Refractory disease as determined by failure of the following regimens:

    Trial of corticosteroids (oral prednisone more than 20 mg/day); Trial of cyclophosphamide 0.4 ~ 0.6 / m2 every two weeks for six months, or other immunosuppressive drugs, such as mycophenolate mofetil 2 g / day, for three months;

  4. Patients must sign an informed consent indicating that they are aware of the investigational nature of the study in keeping with the policy of the hospital;
  5. Willing to use contraception throughout the study and for 12 months following treatment
