Updated on 24 January 2021


This is a phase I/II, randomized, blinded and placebo-controlled study to test the safety and efficacy of LMCSs for improving vaccine immune response.


A pilot phase will consist of a 3 subject safety run-in, followed by 20 subject randomized phase to evaluate influenza vaccine response at 1 week and 4 weeks post infusion of LMSCs. This will be followed by a double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled phase.
