Brief Summary:

This will be an open-label, non-randomized, multi-center, patient sponsored study of Adipose-Derived Stromal vascular fraction cells implantation via intravenous infusion.

The intent of this clinical study is to answer the questions: 1) Is the proposed treatment safe and 2) Is treatment effective in improving the disease pathology of patients with diagnosed Type II Diabetes Mellitus.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intravenous Injection of AD-SVF
Intravenous administration of AD-SVF.
Procedure: Harvesting and Implantation of Adipose-Derived Stromal Vascular Fraction (AD-SVF)
ASCs will be derived from the patient's adipose-derived tissue. Liposuction using local anesthesia and syringe collection will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen for subsequent processing to isolate the stem cells.
Other Names:
  • Lipoaspiration
  • Liposuction

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reduction of insulin requirement by > 50% [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]
  2. Number of adverse events reported [ Time Frame: up to the 6-month period following treatment ]
    The safety of adipose-derived stem cell injection will be evaluated by assessment of the frequency and nature of adverse events occurring during the study injection and up to the 6-month period following treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement of Hemoglobin A1c(HbA1c) levels as compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]
    Blood sample

  2. reduction in requirement of insulin dosage compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
