    Adverse events include renal failure, liver failure, and hemolytic anemia.

  • Safety of allogeneic MSC therapy in patients with iPD as indicated by the presence of adverse events that are confirmed to be related to the therapy [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after the first infusion ]
    Adverse events include renal failure, liver failure, and hemolytic anemia.

  • Safety of allogeneic MSC therapy in patients with iPD as indicated by the presence of adverse events that are confirmed to be related to the therapy [ Time Frame: 24 weeks after the first infusion ]
    Adverse events include renal failure, liver failure, and hemolytic anemia.

  • Safety of allogeneic MSC therapy in patients with iPD as indicated by the presence of adverse events that are confirmed to be related to the therapy [ Time Frame: 52 weeks after the first infusion ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in motor function as assessed by the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Total score [ Time Frame: baseline, 3 weeks ]

    The UPDRS serves as a disability and impairment scale for progression follow-up and is divided into four sections.

    • Part I: evaluation of mentation, behavior, and mood (13 questions).
    • Part II: evaluation of activities of daily living including speech, swallowing, handwriting, dressing, hygiene, falling, salivating, turning in bed, walking, and cutting food (13 questions).
    • Part III: motor examination (33 scores based on 18 questions with right, left or other body distributions scores)
    • Part IV: motor complications (6 questions)

    All items have 5 response options with uniform anchors of: 0 = normal, 1 = slight (symptoms/signs with sufficiently low frequency or intensity to cause no impact on function), 2 = mild (symptoms/signs of frequency or intensity sufficient to cause a modest impact on function, 3 = moderate (symptoms/signs sufficiently frequent or intense to impact considerably, but not prevent function), 4 = severe (symptoms/signs that prevent function).

    Diffusion tensor and T2 imaging with the resting state functional connectivity technique will be used.

  • perfusion as assessed by arterial spin-labeled (ASL) perfusion MRI [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Resting cerebral blood flow (CBF) will be measured using a pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL) MRI sequence with gradient-echo echo-planar imaging (EPI), which allows for a non-invasive quantification of CBF.

  • structural connectivity as assessed by diffusion-weighted MRI for diffusion tensor image (DTI) analysis [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    A set of diffusion-weighted image volumes (32-directions, high angular resolution) will be collected using the gradient overplus option with one B0 (non-diffusion weighted) image volume acquired before the acquisition of one repetition of the diffusion-weighted scans. Diffusion tensor and associated computations will be performed. White matter microstructure will be examined, which represents the structural pathways linking specific cortical and subcortical regions. It will be determined whether there is increased fractional anisotropy and decreased mean diffusivity along white matter fibers that link regions exhibiting increased functional connectivity, such as substantia nigra and dorsal striatum.

  • Change in brain activity as assessed by task state fMRI [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    Whole-brain echo-planar imaging (EPI) runs sensitive to BOLD contrast will be acquired while participants do self-paced finger tapping using their left and right hands at separate points in time, and during the resting state after being instructed to remain still and fixate on a white crosshair displayed on a black background during the functional acquisition. Functional imaging will be done in the OFF medication state. It will be determined whether there is a reduction in the abnormally high activity pattern in motor cortex and an increase in putamen activity.
