A Study to Evaluate the Safety of ALLO-ASC-CD for Treatment of Crohn's Disease

Study Purpose

This is a phase I study to evaluate the safety of ALLO-ASC-CD for the treatment of crohn' disease. ALLO-ASC-CD is intravenous infusion containing allogenic adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages 18 Years - 65 Years
Gender All

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

Adipose-derived stem cells are directed to injured tissue, and reduce inflammation. Furthermore, their immunomodulatory effects are significant for treating immune-related diseases, such as crohn's disease. Finally, ALLO-ASC-CD may provide a new option in treating a crohn's disease.
