Brief Summary:
Will injection(s) of autologous culture-expanded AMSCs be safe and efficacious for treatment of painful Hip OA, and if so, which dosing regimen is most effective?

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Osteoarthritis, Hip Drug: Autologous Adipose Derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cells Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This phase I study will enroll 24 subjects with mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the hip. Subjects will receive either a single dose of 30 million autologous culture-expanded adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (AMSCs), or two doses of AMSCs (with one month interval between doses) via ultrasound guided intra-articular hip injection. Patients will be followed for 24 months past their last injection to determine the local and systemic safety of single and two-dose injections of AMSCs in the treatment of symptomatic hip OA.

    Synovial fluid from attempted aspiration at the time of injection (and re-injection for the two injection cohort) will be analyzed for cells, cytokines, growth factors, and other similar biomarkers.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

To be eligible for inclusion into this study, the subjects must fulfill all of the following criteria:

  1. Male or female ages 18-65 years

    • Persons of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to receiving the study drug and will agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method or abstinence) from the time of screening to a period of 1 year following completion of the drug treatment cycle. Females of childbearing potential are defined as premenopausal and not surgically sterilized, or post-menopausal for fewer than 2 years. A urine pregnancy test will be performed prior to the administration of the study drug to confirm negative results. If the urine pregnancy test is positive, the study drug will not be administered and the result will be confirmed by a serum pregnancy test. Serum pregnancy tests will be performed at a central clinical laboratory, whereas urine pregnancy tests will be performed by qualified personnel using kit

  2. Persons becoming pregnant during the study will continue to be monitored for the duration of the study or completion of the pregnancy, whichever is longer. Monitoring will include perinatal and neonatal outcome. Any SAEs associated with pregnancy will be recorded.
  3. Chronic (> 3 months), unilaterally symptomatic, primary hip OA. Patients with episodes of contralateral hip pain that is asymptomatic at the time of enrollment will be eligible for inclusion. However, as outlined in the primary study endpoints, patients with previous episodes of contralateral hip pain who experience a repeat episode of contralateral pain similar to their established pattern of pain during the course of the trial will not be considered as having experienced an adverse event.
  4. Radiographic hip OA of Tönnis Grade 1 - 2, accompanied by at least mild sclerosis and joint space narrowing, as agreed upon by two study co-investigators without underlying structural hip abnormalities
