This is a phase I study to assess the safety and tolerability of infusing expanded stem cells into the pancreas of patients with type I diabetes and a successful renal transplant. The stem cells used in this study occur naturally in the body and are collected from each recipient by a procedure called leukapheresis. The cells are then expanded and differentiated into insulin-like cells in a sterile suite before being injected into the body or tail of the pancreas of the recipient.

Further study details as provided by Imperial College London:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety will be evaluated in terms of adverse events graded according to CTC toxicity criteria and laboratory test results. All adverse events will also be graded for relationship to treatment and as expected and unexpected. [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess improvement in endocrine pancreatic function as measured by serological and biochemical analysis and determine any symptomatic improvements as they are reported by the patients. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: November 2008
