Clinical Trial of CD34 Stem Cells for Liver Failure

From Category: Hepatic

London, UK-

The use of stem cells to treat liver failure is not new. Animal models, as well as pilot clinical trials have demonstrated statistically significant improvement in liver enzyme values and overall clinical scores.

In a recent study (Pai et al. Autologous Infusion of Expanded Mobilized Adult Bone Marrow-Derived CD34+ Cells Into Patients With Alcoholic Liver Cirrhosis. Am J Gastroenterol 2008 Jun 30) a practical method of clinical stem cell therapy for liver failure was presented.

In a subject population of 9 victims suffering from alcohol associated liver cirrhosis autologous G-CSF mobilized and CD34 expanded stem cells were administered via the hepatic artery.

Statistically significant improvements in ALT, AST, and bilirubin were observed as early as 1-week post infusion and maintained for the observation period (12 weeks).

7 of 9 had improved Child Pugh Score.

5 of 9 had improvement in ascites.

No treatment associated adverse effects were seen.

My colleagues and I have just concluded one of India's most in-depth studies on "Clinical Trials in India". We have looked at various areas such as:
- Market Trends
- Growth Drivers
- Regulatory Bodies and Framework
- Major Players.
-Etc.
We interviewed over 200 individuals and firms to collect the data in what we believe is one of the most detailed study on the subject in India. If you are interested in a copy, you may email me at infoalcpl@gmail.com.
