To determine the safety and toxicity of intra-arterial infused autologous adipose derived mesenchymal stromal (stem) cells in patients with vascular occlusive disease of the kidney.
This study is designed to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of ixmyelocel-T compared to placebo (vehicle control) when administered via transendocardial catheter-based injections to patients with end stage heart failure due to IDCM, who have no reasonable revascularization options (either surgical or percutaneous interventional) likely to provide clinical benefit.
The investigators propose to study the safety of autologous mesenchymal stromal cell transfer using a biomatrix (the Gore® Bio-A®; Fistula Plug) in a Phase I study using a single dose of 20 million cells. Twenty adult patients (age 18 years or older) with refractory, complicated perianal fistulizing Crohn's disease will be enrolled. Subjects will undergo standard adjuvant therapy including drainage of infection and placement of a draining seton with continuation of pre-existing anti-Crohn's therapy. Six weeks post placement of the draining seton, the seton will be replaced with the MSC loaded Gore® Bio-A® fistula plug as per current clinical practice. The subjects will be subsequently followed for fistula response and closure for 24 months. This is an autologous product derived from the patient and used only for the same patient.
This is a Phase I study to determine the safety and feasibility of injections of autologous umbilical cord blood (UCB) cells into the right ventricle of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) children undergoing a scheduled Glenn surgical procedure. The investigators are doing this research study to find out if autologous stem cells from the individual's own umbilical cord blood can be used to strengthen the muscle of the right side of their heart. This will help determine the safety and feasibility of using cell-based regenerative therapy as an additional treatment for the management of HLHS.
The purpose of this study is to collect, convert and bank blood cells from healthy volunteers into stem cells (iPSCs) at a current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) facility within the Mayo Clinic Human Cellular Therapy Laboratory (HCTL). After comprehensive validation, we will bank those cGMP-iPSCs as a resource available to Mayo Clinic investigators and also to outside investigators as appropriate. Those bio-specimens could be unique resources to develop new protocols for production of clinical grade iPSC-derived cells, cell-derived products such as extracellular vesicles, and tissues to support Investigational New Drug (IND) and related clinical trials.
The purpose of this study is to determine the change in health outcomes and cardiac structure and function of subjects with HLHS following successful separation from cardiopulmonary bypass and reversal of anticoagulation at the time of elective Stage II Glenn surgical palliation.
As part of the long-term goal of successfully implementing tissue regeneration strategies in an individualized manner for patients with thoracic diseases including, but not limited to: cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension, the investigators will assess the feasibility of collecting skin biopsies from patients undergoing surgery for thoracic disease, culturing skin fibroblasts from the biopsy, and reprogramming these skin fibroblasts into induced pluripotent cells.
The overall goal of this study is to develop regenerative cell therapy for use in patients with osteoarthritis (OA). The primary objective of this proposal is to conduct a pilot study that assesses the safety and feasibility of using concentrated bone marrow aspirate containing MSC to treat patients with painful knee OA.
The purpose of this study is to determine determine the safety of intraspinal delivery of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to the cerebral spinal fluid of patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) using a dose-escalation study.
Cell-based cardiac regeneration has been the focus of acquired, adult heart disease for many years. However, congenital heart disease with severe structural abnormalities may also be reasonable targets for cell-based therapies. Interestingly, the pediatric heart is naturally growing and may be the most amendable to regenerative strategies. Therefore, identifying autologous cells (cells from the patient's own body) would be important to initiate these studies.
This study aims to validate the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of autologous cells for the purpose of cardiac repair of congenital heart disease. Cells will be isolated from the cord blood to help us determine the feasibility of collection, processing, and storage of these samples at the time of birth of infants with prenatal diagnosis of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. This study may be useful for the development of pre-clinical and clinical studies aimed at the long-term goal of repairing damaged heart muscle.
