Brief Summary:
The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the efficacy (by monitoring the wound size reduction of Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease-related clinically relevant ulcers) and safety (by monitoring adverse events) of one dose of allo-APZ2-PAOD administered intramuscularly into an affected lower leg of patients with Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease Biological: allo-APZ2-PAOD Drug: Placebo Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an interventional, randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind phase I/IIa clinical trial to investigate the efficacy and safety of allo-APZ2-PAOD for the treatment of Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease patients with non-healing ulcers. The allogeneic investigational product allo-APZ2-PAOD contains skin-derived ABCB5-positive mesenchymal stem cells isolated from skin tissue of healthy donors and stored in a donor cell bank.

Patients are followed up for efficacy for 12 weeks by clinical visits at the clinical trial sites to monitor wound healing. The wound healing process of all relevant ulcers will be documented by standardized photography and the quality of the wound healing process will be assessed.

Pain will be assessed using a numerical rating scale and quality of life will be investigated with a standardized and validated questionnaire. To assess long-term safety of allo-APZ2-PAOD three follow-up visits at Months 6, 9 and 12 post IMP applications are included. An unblinded external Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) will continuously monitor safety throughout the study.

    Percent change in total wound size of the target leg will be evaluated.

  3. Absolute change in total wound size of the target leg [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12. ]
    Absolute change in total wound size of the target leg will be evaluated.

  4. Ankle-brachial index (ABI) of target leg; [ Time Frame: Screening Visit, Baseline, Week 2, 4, 8 and 12. ]

    Epithelialization of all relevant ulcers of the target leg will be evaluated by the investigator based on image analysis for each ulcer individually.

  8. Assessment of further wound healing parameters: formation of granulation tissue in % of wound area and wound exudation of all relevant ulcers of the target leg [ Time Frame: Day 0 prior IMP-application, week 2, 4, 8 and 12. ]

    Formation of granulation tissue in % of wound area will be assessed by the investigator based on image analysis for each ulcer individually.

    Wound exudation of all relevant ulcers of the target leg will be evaluated as high-moderate-low based on amounts of fluid on the wound.

    Quality of life (QoL) using the short form 36 (SF-36) questionnaire will be evaluated.

    The SF-36 questionnaire is a self-administered questionnaire containing 36 items.

    It measures health on eight multi-item dimensions, covering functional status, well being, and overall evaluation of health.


  10. Pain assessment as per numerical rating scale (NRS). [ Time Frame: Day 0 prior IMP-application, week 2, 4, 8 and 12. ]
    Pain assessment as per numerical rating scale (NRS) will be evaluated.

  11. Physical examination at week 12; [ Time Frame: Week 12. ]
    A full physical examination will be performed at week 12 and abnormal physical examination results will be evaluated and reported as AEs.

  12. Vital signs: Body temperature at week 12; [ Time Frame: Week 12. ]
    Body temperature at week 12 will be evaluated.

    Blood pressure at week 12 will be evaluated.

  14. Vital signs: Heart rate at week 12; [ Time Frame: Week 12. ]

    The Hematology values will be measured and evaluated at Week 12

  16. Assessment of Laboratory values (Clinical chemistry) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12. ]
