Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) - Like Cell Transplantation in Women With Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (MSCLCTWPOI)

General Information

Summary There is a high incidence of women suffering from Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). So far, there was no treatment sufficient enough to cure POI. Cell therapy is a rapidly developing field and have shown immense promise in the treatment of ovarian dysfunction. In this study, the investigator will evaluate the safety of MSC-like cell therapy in women suffering from POI.
Description The purpose of this work is to explore the safety and preliminary efficacy of human embryonic stem cell derived MSC-like cell transplantation in women with POI. MSC-like cells were injected directly into bilateral ovaries under transvaginal ultrasound. Patients are subjected into 3 groups, with low (0.2×107), medium (0.5×107) and high dosage (1.0×107) of cells injection for each ovary. The outcomes of patients were followed after the injection every 2 weeks. The investigator mainly follow the safety indexes, and the level of sex hormone and signs of follicle growth will also be monitored. The growing follicles will be stimulated by exogenous hormone, followed by oocyte retrieval and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Which differentiated cell type is used
Label mesenchymal stem cell
Description A connective tissue cell that normally gives rise to other cells that are organized as three-dimensional masses. In humans, this cell type is CD73-positive, CD90-positive, CD105-positive, CD45-negative, CD34-negative, and MHCII-negative. They may further differentiate into osteoblasts, adipocytes, myocytes, neurons, or chondroblasts in vitro. Originally described as residing in the bone marrow, this cell type is now known to reside in many, if not all, adult organs.; Many but not all mesenchymal cells derive from the mesoderm. MSCs are reportedly CD3-negative, CD4-negative, CD5-negative, CD8-negative, CD11a-negative, CD11b-negative, CD14-negative, CD19-negative, CD29-positive, CD31-negative, CD34-negative, CD38-negative, CD40-negative, CD44-positive, CD45-negative, CD49-positive, CD54-positive, CD66b-negative, CD79a-negative, CD80-negative, CD102-positive, CD106-positive, CD117-positive, CD121a-positive, CD121b-positive, CD123-positive, CD124-positive, CD133-negative, CD146-positive, CD166-positive, CD271-positive, B220-negative, Gr1-negative, MHCI-positive, MHCII-negative, SSEA4-negative, sca1-positive, Ter119-negative, and glycophorin A-negative. Cultured MSCs are capable of producing stem cell factor, IL7, IL8, IL11, TGF-beta, cofilin, galectin-1, laminin-receptor 1, cyclophilin A, and MMP-2.
