Accepts Healthy Volunteers

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

No
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.

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.

NCT03765957
Phase

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.

Psoriasis
Additional Details

Psoriasis is a chronic and recurrent inflammatory skin disease and its histological features are characterized by epidermal hyperplasia, increased angiogenesis and immune cell infiltration. Psoriasis prevalence is about 0.1%-3%, affecting approximately 125 million people worldwide. In China, there are about 10 million psoriasis patients. Human umbilical cord-derived MSC (huc-MSC) has many advantages for the treatment of immune disease. Because it was demonstrated that huc-MSCs are effective in modulating immune cells and treating diseases and it has low immunogenicity. Furthermore, huc-MSCs do not raise ethical issue for clinical applications. Some experimental results and cases has showed that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) can prevent or treat psoriasis. This clinical study is conducted to provide more data to evaluate the effect and safety of treatment of psoriasis by human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell.

Arms & Interventions

Arms

Experimental: Mesenchymal Stem Cells

The mesenchymal stem cells will be derived from human umbilical cord. After the subjects are screened and qualified, random number envelopes will be selected to group 12 subjects into group A, group B, group C and group D at a ratio of 1:1:1:1. The subjects of group A and B will be injected intravenously with 1.5x10E6/kg and 2.0x10E6/kg(according to the weight of subject)mesenchymal stem cells respectively at baseline and every 2 weeks, 4 times is a course of treatment. Subjects will be followed up for evaluation on 15 days, 30 days, 45 days, month 2, month 3 and month 6 after treatment. The subjetcts of group C and D will be injected intravenously with 2.5x10E6/kg and 3.0x10E6/kg (according to the weight of subject)mesenchymal stem cells respectively at baseline and every 4 weeks, 2 times is a course of treatment. Subjects will be followed up for evaluation on 15 days, 30 days, 45 days, month 2, month 3 and month 6 after treatment.
