Brief Summary:
Phase I clinical trial to evaluate safety of FURESTEM-CD Inj. in patients with moderate to severe in plaque-type psoriasis injection for 4weeks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Psoriasis Biological: FURESTEM-CD Inj. Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a phase 1, single center, randomized, open label, study of safety of FURESTEM-CD Inj. in subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Approximately 9~18 subjects will be administrated FURESTEM-CD Inj.

FURESTEM-CD Inj. is composed of allogeneic hUCB-MSC(human Umbilical Cord Blood derived-Mesenchymal Stem cell). hUCB-MSCs are mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord blood. Mesenchymal stem cells are well-known for immunosuppression, anti-inflammatory ability and capable of differentiating into a wide range of cell types. Therefore, FURSTEM-CD Inj. has huge possibility as cell therapy products for plaque-type Psoriasis patients.
