Brief Summary:
The Clinical trial is a phase I/IIa clinical study for treatment of knee osteoarthritis by intra-articular injection of bone marrow derived allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells. Primary endpoint of the study is safety of allogeneic BM-MSCs application on knee OA with single dose IA injection and the MTD. Secondary endpoint is the effect of allogeneic BM-MSCs transplantation including clinical and image observation since the MSCs have multi-lineage differentiation potential such as chondrocyte differentiation, anti-inflammation and immune-modulation.

Detailed Description:
Osteoarthritis of the knee (Knee Osteoarthritis, Knee OA) is a joint disease that primarily affects cartilage. Cartilage is the smooth tissue covering the ends of bones within the joint. In people who suffer from knee OA, articular cartilage top is broken down and worn away, resulting in the underlying bones to rub against each other. This friction can cause pain, joint swelling and decreased range of motion (ROM). Eventually, the joint may become deformed and bone spurs may form around the edges. With the advances in biotechnology, cell therapy in the application of cartilage reconstruction has gradually matured. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of single intra-articular (IA) injection of allogeneic bone marrow (BM) mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for knee OA. The same cell products used in this trial have been applied in a phase I/IIa clinical trial in Taiwan for the treatment of critical limb ischemia, and so far no treatment-related adverse effect has been observed. In the current trial, allogeneic bone marrow MSCs of up to 4 donors will be isolated. BM MSCs are expanded and applied for a phase I/IIa study in treating 15-24 recipient patients with knee OA. The treatment protocol consists of two stages: the first stage is a traditional 3+3 open dose-escalated study design with three cohorts of dosing groups: (1) 1 x 10^7 cells, (2) 5 x 10^7 cells and (3) 10 x 10^7 cells. At the second stage, knee OA patients will be treated by the cell products of the maximum tolerance dose (MTD) as determined by the results of the first stage. All the study subjects will be followed up to 6 months (24 weeks) after the treatment for safety and preliminary efficacy evaluation, which the latter will include both clinical and imaging study assessments.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events as measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    treatment-related adverse events assessed by CTCAE v4.0


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy - Radiographic evidence [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Change in cartilage thickness of the knee using MRI and X-ray

  2. Efficacy - WOMAC assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Change in joint function from baseline WOMAC assessment

  3. Efficacy - Visual Analogue Scale(VAS) assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) is a unidimensional measure of pain intensity. The scale is most commonly anchored by "no pain " (score of 0) and "worst imaginable pain" (score of 10).

  4. Efficacy - Lequesne Index assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Change in arthritis pain scores on the Lequesne Index

  5. Efficacy - Keen Society Score(KSS) assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The knee society score is divided into four parts: it consists of the ''Symptoms''(25 points), the ''Patient satisfaction''(40 points), the ''Patient expectation''(15 points) and the ''Functional activities''(100 points). Each part will be evaluated separately.

  6. Efficacy - QOL assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Change in scores on the QOL
