Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the treatment of human menstrual blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells which would be applied to diabetes patients is safe and effective.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Biological: MenSCs transplantation Drug: exogenous indulin injection daily Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Diabetes mellitus is chronic metabolic diease caused by absent or rejection insulin from pancreatic b cells.The traditional treatment strategies for diabetes are daily injections with insulin and transplantation of islets from cadaver. However, daily injuection is very inconvenient and there is a shortage of organs and life long immunosuppression. Therefore, such therapy can be offered to a very limited number of patients only. MSC-based therapeutic intervention has become an emerging strategy for the replacement of injured tissues. MSCs also have been noted to possess immunomodulatory effects in vivo. Thus, their potential for clinical use as a cell-based therapy should be focused and observation.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Traditional therapy control Drug: exogenous indulin injection daily
traditional therapy, such as insulin injection daily, monitoring random and postprandial blood glucose.

Experimental: Stem cell infusion Biological: MenSCs transplantation
1×10^6/kg MenSCs are infused through pancreatic artery or intravenous infusion once a week by the 4 consecutive therapies.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The acute reaction and severity of adverse events related to the stem cell infusion procedure [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  2. Number of severe and documented hypoglycemic events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  3. C-peptide release test [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  4. The reduction in fasting blood glucose (FBG) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  5. The increase in basal C-peptide [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  6. The postprandial blood glucose [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  7. The random glucose level [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
