|Diabetic Neuropathy||Biological: Normal saline Biological: stem-cell||Not Applicable|
Diabetic painful neuropathy a prevalent, disabling disorder. Currently, the only effective treatments are glucose control and pain management. Diabetic neuropathy is characterized by reduction of vascularity in peripheral nerves and deficiency in neurotrophic and angiogenic factors. Recent studies have shown that bone marrow (BM)-derived stem or progenitor cells have favorable effects on the repair of cardiovascular diseases. Since these BM-derived stem or progenitor cells contain various angiogenic and neurotrophic factors, these cells have been attempted for treating experimental diabetic neuropathy, and turned out to be effective for reversing various manifestations of experimental diabetic neuropathy.
However, stem-cell therapy was not proven in human study. Therefore, we will investigate the efficacy and safety of autologous peripheral blood stem cell injection in diabetic neuropathy.

|Official Title:||The Efficacy and Safety of Peripheral Mobilized Mononuclear Cell-based Therapy in Patients With Diabetic Painful Neuropathy|

Active Comparator: control
The operator inject normal saline(control) to thirty site of the other side leg of active comparator. The volume of one site injection is 0.5 ml. The depth of needle injection would be 1.5cm.
Biological: Normal saline
Normal saline is injected in one leg of patient.
Active Comparator: stem cell (mononuclear cell)
The stem cell (mononuclear cell) is injected to thirty site of one side leg in operating room after general anesthesia. The volume of one site injection is 0.5 to 1.0 ml. The depth of needle injection would be 1.5cm.
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is injected into subcutaneous for three days prior to the blood collection (D-3 to D-1). Peripheral mononuclear stem-cell is collected by Cobe spectra apheresis system in D-day.
The stem-cell (mononuclear cell) is injected into the muscle in the other side leg of patient.
- Changes in pain for a week after the procedure [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 week, 12 week ]The pain scale was calculate by Numeric rating scale (NRS). We observe a change in NRS pain scores during the follow-up period.
- The evaluation of changes in the specific neuro-sensory system [ Time Frame: baseline, 4 week, 12 week ]The following tests was evaluated during the follow-up period. The pain intensity was evaluated by short-form McGill Pain Questionnaire and by sleep disturbance pain score. The quantitative change of sensory nerve was evaluated by quantitative sensory test (QST). We measure serum neuron-specific enolase (NSE), glucose, insulin and c-peptide. The amount of drug requirements will also assess at each follow-up period.
- The secondary effect of the procedure for the peripheral nerves and blood vessels [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 week ]Michigan neuropathy screening instrument (MNSI) is used for screening for diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Changes in patient's mood is assessed by the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) system. Electrophysiological tests are used in the evaluation of nerve conduct velocity. Skin punch biopsy is used to evaluate the density of epidermal nerve fibers. Improvement of blood flow in the peripheral veins is evaluated by ankle brachial index (ABI), pulse wave velocity (PWV) and digital arterial plethysmography. We measure serum glucose, insulin ant c-peptide. The amount of drug requirements will also assess at each follow-up period.
