Safety of Adipose-derived Regenerative Cells Injection for Treatment of Osteoarthritis of the Facet Joint

Safety and Efficacy of Injection of Adipose-derived Regenerative Cells (ADRCs) in Patients Suffering From Osteoarthritis of the Facet Joints


Phase Not Applicable

DESCRIPTION:

The Sanford Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Clinic and Sanford Spine Center in Sioux Falls, SD is conducting a trial comparing two treatments for osteoarthritis of the facet joint of thoracic spine: injections of stem cells taken from the patient’s adipose, or fat tissue, and injections of corticosteroids. The injections are delivered directly into the spine in a single treatment.

Follow up will be needed at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the injections,


PATIENT MUST:

  • Be 18 to 65 years of age
  • Have a diagnosis of chronic facet joint osteoarthritis
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding, nor intending to do so within 12 months of the start of treatment

THE STUDY INVOLVES:

  1. Prescreening tests to confirm eligibility of the patient to participate.
  2. Mesenchymal stem cells will be drawn from the patient’s adipose, or fat, tissue.
  3. Injection of the stem cells (or corticosteroids, if the patient is assigned to that group) to the facet joint(s) of the spine
  4. Follow up at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the injections,

LOCATIONS AND CONTACTS:
