Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
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 - 80 Years|
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.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Experimental: low dose (1.8 L)
Patients in this arm will be treated with one column (Leukapheresis) and 1.8 L blood will be filtered.
Experimental: high dose (3.6 L)
Patients in this arm will be treated with Two column (Leukapheresis) and 3.6 L blood will be filtered.
Device: - TLA Gut™
The medical device to be investigated is named Tailored Leukapheresis (TLA) Gut™. The device comprises a column that has been designed for extracorporeal leukapheresis to specifically remove chemokine (C-C motif) receptor 9 (CCR9) expressing immunological cell populations including human leukocyte antigen DR isotype (HLA-DRhi ) monocytes from the circulation. This is achieved by integrating a strong affinity binding between the gut homing cell receptor, CCR9, and its cognate ligand, thymus-expressed chemokine (TECK) or chemokine ligand 25 (CCL25). Those blood cells that express CCR9 will bind to presented Biotinylated thymus-engineered chemokine (bTECK) on the matrix by a strong receptor ligand interaction, remaining bound to the matrix. Blood cells that do not express the receptor pass through the column unchanged and are returned to the patient.
