Purpose

Purpose

An international investigation to evaluate if, and if so how long, autologous bone marrow hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can safely restore liver functions for HIV infected patients who have decompensated liver cirrhosis.

Condition Intervention
HIV Infection
AIDS
Cirrhosis

Procedure : Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Safety and Efficacy Study of Autologous Bone Marrow Cell Infusion Therapy in HIV Infected Patients With Advanced Liver Cirrhosis

Further study details as provided by National Center for Global Health and Medicine, Japan:

Primary Outcome Measures

  • Post-transplantation prognosis for cirrhosis [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Evaluate statistical significance between pre-transplantation and 24 weeks after in: Child-Pugh score albumin serum fibrosis markers Transient Elastography (TM) ascites imagery SF-36v2(TM) Health Survey. Because advanced liver cirrhosis is a progressive condition itself, treatment efficacy is defined by "improvement" and "no change" in the indicators listed.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of the treatment efficacy [ Time Frame: After 24 weeks up to 48 weeks ]
    Using the same evaluation modules as of the primary outcomes, investigate and assess the autologous bone marrow transplantation effectivity chronologically after the primal 24 weeks up to 48 weeks to evaluate the duration of the treatment efficacy.

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: March 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
Extraction of bone marrow cells from HIV positive patients with advanced liver cirrhosis and transplant their bone marrow back into the patients
Procedure: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Harvest and apheresis of bone marrow cells from HIV infected patients with cirrhosis under general anesthesia, using bone marrow collection system and transplanting the patients' hematopoietic stem cells back to the patients

Other Name: Autologous bone marrow cell infusion therapy (ABMi)

Detailed Description:

An international investigation to evaluate if, and if so how long, autologous bone marrow (ABM) hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can safely restore liver functions for HIV infected patients who have decompensated liver cirrhosis.
