Clinical Research on Intra-articular Injection of Human Autologous MSCs in Treatment of Knee OA (NCT03028428)

In this study, researchers want to determine the safety of MSCs that a patient can tolerate without causing side effects. Moreover researchers will also be looking at the function of the knee over time, which may give them some insight on the usefulness of MSCs as a treatment option.
  • Biological: Placenta Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell
    1ml 1*10^7 Placenta Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell administered into the knee joint once
    • Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs)

Inclusion Criteria:
  • Patients between 40-75 years of age with symptomatic moderate to severe (Kellgren-Lawrence III or IV) primary osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Idiopathic or secondary osteoarthritis of the knee with grade 2,3, or 4 radiographic severity, as defined by the modified Kellgren-Lawrence classification
  • No history of prior intra-articular cortisone, hyaluronic acid, or platelet-rich plasma injection within the previous six months
  • No history of prior arthroscopic knee surgery or open knee surgery on the ipsilateral side within the past year
  • Adequate bone marrow, liver, and renal functions
  • Body weight >40 kg
  • Body Mass Index <40
  • Negative for (HIV, HTLV1&2, Hep A, B, C, syphilis) infection as determined by approved serological testing
  • Negative for pregnancy as determined by a serum pregnancy test. Females of childbearing potential will be required to practice abstinence or use an effective form of contraception for 12 months following their MSC injection.
  • Ability to provide written informed consent.
Exclusion Criteria:
  • Patients with clinically unstable knee due to the presence of a complete anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and/or posterolateral corner tear
  • Patients with varus or valgus malalignment >5 degrees as measured by 4 foot standing antero-posterior radiographs
  • Patients with a history of a previous subtotal medial or lateral meniscectomy
  • Patients with a history of septic arthritis in the affected joint
  • Patients with a history of a prior intra-articular knee fracture
  • Severe bleeding diathesis
  • Contraindication to bone marrow aspiration and/or biopsy
  • Active infection
  • Bone marrow failure
  • Cytopenia
  • Patients who have previously received radiotherapy to the pelvis
  • Patients who have been on chemotherapy from within a year of the date of informed
  • Patients with positive serological test for (HIV, HTLV1&2, Hep A, B, C, syphilis)
  • Pregnancy or risk of pregnancy (this includes participants that are not willing to practice active contraception for the duration of the study)
  • Patients with unforeseen conditions that are deemed unsafe or inappropriate for the study (e.g. patients who are claustrophobic and cannot undergo an MRI) as per the discretion of the principal investigator
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common forms of arthritis. It is a lasting condition in which the material that cushions the joints, called cartilage, breaks down. This causes the bones to rub against each other, causing inflammation, stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement. Currently, there are few effective treatments available for patients suffering from OA.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are cells that have the ability to self-regenerate, which means they have the ability to make copies of themselves and to turn into other kinds of cells (e.g. cartilage cells). Stem cell science shows much promise for the future treatment of osteoarthritis, but much of the research is still in the early stages. In this study, researchers want to determine the safety of MSCs that a patient can tolerate without causing side effects. Moreover researchers will also be looking at the function of the knee over time, which may give them some insight on the usefulness of MSCs as a treatment option.
