Brief Summary:
Currently, there is no proven effective pharmacologic treatment available for patients with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to be effective in treating several inflammatory diseases. The main purpose of this study is to assess the safety of allogeneic adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells in patients with ARDS.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 20 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I Study of Allogeneic Adipose-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Study Start Date : November 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Mesenchymal stem cell arm
Patients received one dose of 1x 10^6 allogeneic adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells/kg body weight intravenously within 48 hours of enrollment.
Drug: Mesenchymal stem cells
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Patients received one dose of normal saline.
Drug: Placebo
Other Name: Intravenous saline infusion will be designated as placebo.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compare the adverse events between mesenchymal stem cell treatment and placebo groups [ Time Frame: From day 0 at the start of treatment to day 28. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :

    Days in hospital ICU free days at day 28 Ventilator free days at day 28

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. cytokines [ Time Frame: Day 0 to day 7 ]
    IL-6, IL-8, SP-D, TNF-alpha
