Safety Study of Antria Cell Preparation Process to Enhance Facial Fat Grafting With Adipose Derived Stem Cells

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01828723
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : April 11, 2013

Brief Summary:
The primary purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety of injecting the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) [containing Adipose Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs)] enriched fat grafts into regions of the face that require enhancement. The safety of SVF will be evaluated throughout the course of the study phase through the assessment of laboratory values, physical examinations, adverse events, safety phone calls etc.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 6 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase One, Open Label, Single Arm Study to Demonstrate the Safety of Antria Cell Preparation Process During Facial Fat Grafting Assisted With Autologous, Adipose Derived Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)
Study Start Date : April 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2015

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SVF-Enriched Lipoinjection Biological: SVF

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the safety of the administration of a concentrated SVF-enriched fat graft by monitoring the number and types of adverse events, and via physical examinations, vital signs, 12-lead ECGs, blood draws (CBC/LFT/BMP), and urinalysis. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To demonstrate the efficacy of the addition of autologous SVF isolated via Antria Cell Preparation Process by observing graft survival time, volume, and quality of facial re-contouring [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
